About

Designed, Curated and Inspired by Vintage Love

They are the descendants of creators. Their mothers, grandmothers, aunts and cousins have always made things. Sometimes out of necessity, always out of love.

Mary's mother taught her and her sister to knit and sew, She in turn taught her daughters, Meaghan Louise and Sally Elizabeth, with varying degrees of success. Now that they are grown, the sisters, with their mothers assistance, are now passing their skills onto their own children and sharing them with the world.

Sally Elizabeth is a master pattern cutter and retail style guru, her sister Meaghan Louise is an obsessive compulsive creative who is currently knitting and sewing her way through an archaeology degree. and Mary is the mother and practical craft maker who taught them how to do it.

All three of these creative women share a love of vintage style, just not necessarily the vintage price tag.

Sometimes vintage fashions don't fit so well, they're cut too closely with armholes that are too small, waist lines that don't always match a modern bust line and seams that may have seen better days.

So they started making our own.

They love digging through second hand stores and cruising markets (both on and offline) to find beautiful fabrics and yarns.

There's something glorious about old things, things that have been touched and handled by those who are perhaps no longer with us. Vintage items and materials have history. They can evoke childhood memories or inspire dreams of days bygone.

It's nice to think that by using these vintage materials and patterns, combining a little old with a little new, that they are in their own way preserving them for generations to come while bringing joy to those who wear or use them now.
