I can create you something truly unique

Vintage Inspired Prom Dress

With over 13 years experience producing historical garments and with many more years of knowledge of Vintage fashion I can create you a beautiful Vintage inspired garment. This can have a modern edge or be a true reproduction of a dress from the time. I have a passion for Vintage and love to create replica garments. 

Vintage Dress

Perhaps you have a blouse that you absolutely love but want in 3 other colours, or a pair of trousers that fit you perfectly and you just can't get them anymore? I can take a pattern from the original garment and reproduce it for you in any fabric. I can also make changes to the shape such as a slightly higher neckline, or longer sleeve. Creating a garment that's 100% perfect for you. 

Bespoke Occasion Wear Dress

Sustainability is something close to my heart and I love an up-cycling project. If you've bought a Vintage dress or garment for an event that's not quite you. I can work with you create something special whilst keeping the heart of the piece intact. I can also revamp modern dresses to create something perfect for you, from adding a colourful lining, to adding embroidery to create something unique

Vintage dress upcycling

Many people find shopping and finding the perfect outfit for an event a chore. Styling has been my passion for many years and I can use my expertise to help you pull together the perfect look for your event or even daily life. Whether that's a full look to go with one of my bespoke garments or a whole new look from the high street I can help you revamp your wardrobe and make you feel as special as you are. find out more here
