What I love the most about this peasant blouse are the darts that give it a fitted look and the buttons down the back set this blouse apart from the rest. Thanks

About

Jack's Daughter

Classic vintage looks never go out of style so check out my range of 'ready to wear' reproduction vintage from the 30's, 40's and 50's

I love recreating that fabulous vintage classic look we all love, but with the ease and comfort of your PJ's and also with a sneaky touch of ' je ne sais quoi' . We all love to be just that little bit different

All my garments are handmade in Australia. Just me - designing, cutting out and sewing. No extra seamstresses, so you can be assured that your outfit will be made with the utmost care and attention to detail .

Living in Australia my access to fabulous vintage fabrics is limited , unless of course, I look overseas. After all , Australia wasn’t discovered until 1770 while the US was discovered in 1492. That's a lot of extra years to accumulate stuff. I do have some lovely vintage fabrics though, so just contact me.

I make the outfits that I love to wear. Authentic looking garments, inspired by the past as well as vintage styled dresses with an updated / rockabilly look .

I tend to make only 'one off' garments, so you can be assured you will get an exceptional and individual look styled to your personality and preferences.

I love what I do but, as a Libran, I am a perfectionist and do insist on quality whether I'm making an authentic reproduction , a retro rockabilly outfit , a child's vintage styled romper or even painting the house - so , sometimes, you may have to be a little patient with your order. I am not a machine after all .

You can check out my fabrics collection on flickr . Fabrics are updated regularly - well reasonably regularly , but at the moment they are a long way behind. Just contact me for your fabric preferences. I am buying constantly and I just may have the exact fabric you want.

I also have a huge number of vintage patterns ,which seems to expand daily, so just contact me regarding patterns as. at the moment, I haven't found the time to photograph and upload the patterns I have . I seem to spend everyday, all day, sewing.

I have also just started drafting patterns from The Haslam System. I have several books and have already drafted and made up one stunning ( blush ) 40's suit in a lovely wool and silk blend fabric

My Facebook and Instagram pages also have updates of what I've been creating

I have recently added a new store ' Alice Maud Morrison'. It is still reproduction clothing from the 40's, 50's and 60's but is aimed at kids. Check it out - lots of fabulous 'one off' creations for your son and daughter
