Karen and Helen published!

The new book by Val Holmes includes work by Out Of the Fold members Helen Marchant and Karen Frost. 

Published May 2016
 Helen made 'Priscilla' for the Out of the Fold Gallery at the Knitting and Stitching Show in 2014 where it was seen by Val Holmes, then preparing her book on Experimental Corsets, who asked Helen if it may be included in the book. Here she is looking rather fabulous.

At the same show Val saw the beautiful fairytale jacket created by Karen and asked her to create a brand new and unique corset in a similar style for her book. Inspired by the Fairy Queen from A Midsummer's Nights Dream this is the result.

'Experimental Corsets' is published by Batsford and is available now
