About

Why do I sew? I sew because it links me to my past, and brings me joy in the present.

Live and Let Live was the childhood home of my grandmother. She was a simple woman. She would have owned a dozen dresses at best. And most of those she made. But she wanted for nothing, and neither did we.

In our eyes she was a queen. She loved her family beyond all things. She would stop and tell me with a failing voice and a twinkle in a tired eye "All our kids are wonderful Kathy. All of them."

And she is why I sew. I sew to link me to a simpler time. To a past when things were made to last, and when creative skills were an important part of the every day.

Why do I sew? I sew because it links me to my past, and brings me joy in the present.

Live and Let Live was the childhood home of my grandmother. She was a simple woman. She would have owned a dozen dresses at best. And most of those she made. But she wanted for nothing, and neither did we.

In our eyes she was a queen. She loved her family beyond all things. She would stop and tell me with a failing voice and a twinkle in a tired eye "All our kids are wonderful Kathy. All of them."

And she is why I sew. I sew to link me to a simpler time. To a past when things were made to last, and when creative skills were an important part of the every day.

And I sew because of what she taught me. That all our kids are wonderful.

And mine definitely are. Every day her memory reminds me to celebrate my two little girls. To rejoice in them.

And that gave birth to Live and Let Live Designs!

I make handmade girls and boys clothing. Clothing with colour, and joy and a sense of fun. Clothing sustainably made, that gives my children and yours something fun and practical to express who they are. Beautiful clothes - that are totally ready to play!

I started sewing because I wanted my girls to have clothes that were as beautiful as they were - but were practical enough to play. (And because I have a bit of a fabric addiction too I think)

At Live and Let Live Designs you won't find mass produced garments. Everything has been made by me, in my home as I watch my children play. Every piece of fabric is chosen to celebrate the beauty I see around me. Every style has been chosen to look gorgeous - but be practical as well.

It is my goal with Live and Let Live Designs to help me find a way to create and bring beautiful things into your lives, - but to also stay home with my babies just that little bit longer.

To see more of what I am up to I would love to see you on my facebook page. All the latest news and designs are released here first .
