Personalised order

Anne ordered a Lolita brooch to give a touch of originality for her black and white dress she has just bought. The model she chose is based on the red polka dot brooch.
For Anne’s order, I embellished it a vintage black glass gem cut button sewn on white circle with red stitches.
I am now waiting for Anne’s picture so I can share it with you all!
Thank you Anne for your order and for your continuing support.

Residential course

Straight after my degree I attended a residential course specialising in tailoring. The main focus was to make and alter patterns to a classmate’s exact measurements and requirements.
My first ‘customer’ was for a lovely sweet woman who wanted me to make her wedding outfit.
I was so proud that she had chosen and entrusted me to make her clothes for such a special occasion. She chose a beautiful water green satin with little flower print from which I made a corset and matching skirt. She was really happy.

The second outfit I made was for a very chic young Parisian lady. The design was a classy vintage inspired dress from the 60’s in crepe fabric with a black and white collar, cuffs and buttons. She looked stunning.
