Clean lines and eye catching prints

Sometimes, I think I was definitely born in the wrong era.

I love Scandinavian textiles and design and 1960's modernity in fashion. Being a child of the 1980's and growing up in rural Australia, it simply made sense to design and sew my own clothes.

My Etsy store allows me to share my love of quality fabric and simple, modern styling with likeminded people. It is a joy to imagine and construct a beautiful, original piece for someone who loves it.

I still work on my Janome MyExcel, which my mum and dad bought for me when I started to take a genuine interest in sewing. She's a peach and sews as beautifully today as she did when I first took her home. I also rely on my much newer Janome 644D overlocker. (I'm brand loyal).

Inspiration keeps hitting me and I'm beginning to expand my store's offering. I won't sell an item unless I want to wear it myself - which can sometimes be a challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
