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 won't sell an item unless I want to wear it myself - which can sometimes be a challenge!

I work in my beautiful, home based sewing space on Sydney's Sunny Northern Beaches.
