This skirt is absolutely beautiful. I am so in love with the print and the craftsmanship is wonderful. The print is matched across all seams perfectly. I have received so many compliments when I wear this skirt. Dawn was wonderful to work with! I highly recommend this shop.

My sewing machine is my 4th baby!

My sewing passion started right back when I was a little girl, I could never find just the right dress for my Sindys (long before Barbie ruled supreme!). I would hand sew all their pretty frocks. Even now I am proud of how they looked, which is more than I can say for my hairdressing skills. I soon discovered that hairdryers and nylon hair don't mix.

When I had my daughter I wanted her to have all the frilly dresses in the world, but unfortunately these came at a price, so I made my own.

Having three children was quite time consuming and finding time for sewing was sometimes difficult. However when I got my first granddaughter that sewing machine was smoking! She is very tall and slim for her age and my daughter really struggled to find anything that fitted her. I loved creating outfits for her. My daughter absolutely loves vintage, so very soon 1950's dresses were added to my skills. What a wonderful walking advert she was!! Before long I was getting orders from friends and family. I was in a job that I really wasn't enjoying and decided to take the leap of faith and make my hobby a business. I am so happy that I did.

I love working with fabric and creating, but most of all I love seeing the happiness it brings, whether it be a little girl twirling in her twirly dress, a little boy standing proud in his waistcoat and dicky bow or you ladies wearing vintage clothes feeling fabulous darling!!

Happy shopping
