Where do I start?

I’ve been sewing since I was a child. I’ve often worn second-hand clothes, especially while I was a student, and I’m interested in modifying and refashioning to give old garments a whole new lease of life.

I’ve worked in a bridal store doing alterations and fittings, worked in a fabric store, and been running my own dressmaking business (in various guises) since 2000.

I like to work with recycled, organic and ethically produced fabrics.
