About Me

I graduated from a Textiles BA(Hons) at Manchester Metropolitan University specialising in knit in 2011. Since then I have worked as a freelancer in a number of roles including Theatrical Knitter, Fashion Knitter, Costume Assistant, Costume Supervisor and Office Manager.

I am currently working as Operating Officer and Costume Supervisor for New English Ballet Theatre. I am London based, and also able to take freelance knitting jobs, as well as private commissions. Email me on allie.duthie@gmail.com for details/inquiries.

  1. Your blog is lovely.
    Thanks for popping over to The Ark’s spot.
    All the best with your career goals.
    How’s London these days? Haven’t been ‘home’ for years! 🙂

    • Hi Amy, I’m afraid I didn’t make any of the slippers, just found the patterns online and gathered them together, the links should be there if you’d like to give any of them a go yourself! Thanks for the comment!

  2. Hi! thanks for liking a post on my blog, which led me to yours! I’m new to blogging here and I’m so happy and impressed to have found Textile centered blogs, as I’m about to begin textile design studies this year. I’m especially loving your blog since I’ve been thinking about costume design for theatre and dance and your work is just amazing!

  3. Beautiful blog! Would be happy to make a post about your designs on my blog if you are ever interested. I am presently working on a post about costume design. Thank you for following mine!

  4. Hello Allie, I can’t remember if I sent you a message already or not – to say THANK YOU for linking my image back to me back in March – well back to me on Down That Little Lane. I’m ink & weave (tea freak, hit me with your best pot). Am newish to how it all works online, and have realised that image has just gone all over the place, with not a single mention of where it came from, except for you! A little bit dismayed! You know how it is, being a maker yourself. I actually photographed that cup, it is in my cupboard right now, and thunk up the line. It’s been great bringing a bit of Benetar into the kitchen 🙂 Thank you again, your blog is just lovely. Caroline

    • Hi Caroline,
      Thank you so much for your lovely comment! I do try and credit work as best I can, sometimes it’s hard to find its origin, but I think makers and designers deserve to have their hard work recognised. Some bloggers are brilliant at doing this but some are not, and it’s a pity to see great work without any details of who it’s by and where it came from. It might be worth quickly messaging anyone who has posted your image without credit to ask if they’d mind including your name and a link in the post?
      Drop me a line if you think you have something else of yours that would fit in well here and I’ll happily feature it, and if you would like a personal link added to the ‘Hit me with your best pot’ post just let me know!
      Best wishes,
