About Me

A little bit about what I do…

I have been dressmaking for over 30 years but it is only relatively recently that I have truly indulged my passion for sewing. I completed an FdA in Costume Construction for Stage and Screen at Cleveland College of Art and Design in 2013 when I gained a Distinction. In 2014 achieved a first class honours degree specialising in costume.  I have experience in pattern drafting, cutting and construction; millinery, tailoring and embellishment for historical costumes as well as for modern day wear.  My portfolio is varied; anything for the wedding industry made to measure  as well as everyday wear and soft furnishings.  I will also take on alterations.  I teach sewing classes, give talks  and demonstrations; run sewing and millinery workshops as well as offering fascinator hen parties.  In 2016 I was a finalist in the Teesdale Business Awards Best New Business section and in 2017 I will be running workshops at Higham Hall in Cumbria, Marlborough College Summer School and Cleveland College of Art and Design in Middlesbrough.  Check the relevant websites for details.
