    Such a wonderful experience. Don't hesitate to work with such a talented and kind individual. Even though we are half a world apart, she is my favorite seamstress, and despite her busy schedule, I hope to always stay on her books for new dresses. Thank you so much!

    AMAZING quality. This is such a wonderful seamstress and person. I am so fortunate to have found her. She is lovely to work with and extremely talented. She made this pattern for me from a photo. It just doesn't get much better than this. Feels like you are wearing an original, without the guilt of possibly ruining said original. I can't wait for many more dresses in my future. Thabk you so very much!

About

1920's and '30s Fashions from the Art Deco Capital!

A little bit about Tammy...

Award winning Art Deco Fashion designer and seamstress

The first taste of the Napier Art Deco Festival in 2013 sparked a passion for
Art Deco fashions of the '20s and '30s. With a background in costume design and tailoring,
each garment is meticulously created from a wide range of fabrics to best suit the style
and flare of the era.

Now based in Napier "The Art Deco Capital" in the sunny Hawkes Bay of New Zealand,
these exclusively made-to-measure garments are shipped to customers as far off as
America, Europe and Australia. Some designs are copied directly from fashion plates of the
period; others are designed to suit a stunning piece of cloth, or to fit an odd scrap of silk!

The following pages showcase the favourite pieces of the last five years, from suits to
silk dresses, beach pyjamas to bandeaus. Something perhaps for the modern fashionista
as well as the vintage-loving bright young thing!

    Hi I'm Tammy! Swing dancer, gin lover and 1920's styled 'bright young thing'. I have sewn since I was 5 years old and hold a bachelor of design in costume and tailoring, skills which I put to good use creating modern garments with vintage aesthetics.
