Jane Bignell's Profile
My name is really Jane and this is the story of how my grandma inspired the name for my shop. My Grandmas was one of 13 surviving children living in the industrial north of England and her mother (my great grandmother) had a sister who had married and moved to London. She ran a stall with her husband on Petticoat Lane, London and to help out her sister she would sent clothes parcels. As my Grandma became a teenager, she aspired to be a daring flapper and would snaffle up anything from the clothes parcel in that style.
I started the Petticoat Jane label because I wanted to offer one-off clothes with a vintage twist to people who like me love vintage styles and the quality of clothes from the past. I use genuine vintage patterns to make fabulous quality clothes that will last.
I have always loved vintage clothes, their quality…
