       Bespoke wedding gowns, corsets and vintage dresses.

Up until the WW1 the female body was manipulated into various silhouettes by the means of tightly woven cotton fabric, whale bones and tight lacing. It still amazes me how different shaped pattern pieces can influence the final outline. Originally worn as an under garment corsets are now so beautiful they need to be on show. I still use the strong cotton coutil to support the steel boning and use luxurious silks, ribbons and beads to embellish.

Bespoke, made-to- measure, exclusive, call it what you will, your wedding dress is made especially for you. I've never made two wedding dresses the same. I have a fantastic collection of silk fabrics to choose from. Bring your own ideas to me and together, we will design your gown, I'll do the sewing.

Newly made vintage inspired dresses. From new fabrics I can make day, evening or wedding dresses inspired by Hollywood icons, think Grace kelly, Jean Harlow and Marilyn Monroe.
