Lesley's Girls Upcycled: Where neglected vintage breathes again

    I am a full time mum of 2, vintage seller & blogger. I drink too much coffee and read- a lot. As a history graduate from Uni of London, I feel history and vintage go hand in hand. I am a great believer in following your taste not just the fashion.

    Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, Seamstress Extraordinaire

    I am a full time mum of 2 (number 3 on the way!) and when I am not looking after my growing family I love to sew. I have been sewing since I was 8 years old, creating clothes for my dolls with scraps of fabric given to me my our mother, Lesley.

Additional policies and FAQs

SIZE AND MEASUREMENTS: Please note that vintage clothes sizes are often very different from modern sizing, so read the measurements (all pieces are measured flat) and then measure yourself to check. It is the extra room which makes a garment wearable, so the measurement of the garment you are looking at should be slightly larger than your own.
Tip: Measuring something that fits you well and is a similar type of garment to the one you're buying is a good way of checking it will fit you well. If you need any additional measurements just ask.

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING: If there is something specific you are looking for let us know... we may be able to make you that unique scratch piece from vintage fabrics and patterns via the Etsy shop; or source that special vintage item for you.

All of your details are safe as houses with us and we won’t share them with anyone!

Thank you for looking and we hope you enjoy Lesley's Girls style!
