I love these! I really struggle to get vintage trousers to fit (who knew it was possible to be too tiny!) Thrilled with them and the professional communication I received through the making process.

About

My background

My mother was a seamstress and I remember staying up late helping her pin patterns and cut out garments. I’d stay up watching her sew until the early hours of the morning, watching her incredible attention to detail. She’s such an incredible inspiration to me.

I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2006 with a degree in Textile Design. During my time at university I studied weaving, printing, embroidery and knitting. I specialised in woven textiles for fashion; it encouraged my love of texture and colour, and it’s always so difficult to choose fabrics, even now!

After graduating, my career got side-tracked from the fashion industry to interior design and I made the leap to leave Nottingham for the bright lights of London. I’ve worked in numerous high-end interior design companies but despite how successfully my career was steering in the interiors industry, I really missed fashion.

I got a part time job in the vintage boutique, The Girl Can’t Help It, located in London’s best indoor antiques centre, Alfie’s Antiques Market. I learnt a great deal about vintage fashion and styling from working there and I loved how all the garments were hand-picked from America and shipped across the pond.
