A few years ago Shelley took a course in surface design for fun and started playing with designing fabric.
Little did she realise at the time that people would be interested in buying her fabric. This was the start of Molly Molly Fabric. In this episode we talk about designing fabric and clothing labels, drafting your own body blocks and Shelley’s bright and fun clothing style. And if you’ve ever felt like an imposter or are looking for a creative outlet which is very different from your day job, you may also relate to Shelley’s story.
