I have ALWAYS loved dressing up and started sewing at the age of 6 when my Great Aunt let me use her very ancient Singer sewing machine! It was love at first stitch and I've been sewing ever since! A chance encounter with a fashion history book in my local library and an obsession with Silver Screen starlets ignited my passion for vintage style and it endures to this day.
My sewing adventures have taken me to fashion school, teacher training, class rooms for young and old, pattern cutting for well known brands and designers, costume production for film, television and stage and most recently, sustainably made bespoke Bridal Couture. I currently make limited edition and one of a kind clothing with a vintage edge, blog about my sewing adventures and make videos documenting my makes and creative endeavours.
As passionate as I am about making clothes, I have become ever more passionate about communicating my enduring love for sewing with others. so now I'm developing my own Dressmaking guides, patterns and resources all aiming to help fellow sewists make and create their own unique homemade wardrobe.
I live in a cottage by the sea on the South Coast of England with my lucky black cats, Loki & Missy and I spend my days sewing, knitting and drinking Earl Grey tea.
