Welcome to The Sewing Room 

made-to-measure essentials with a hint of vintage 



Every garment made at The Sewing Room is inspired by a vintage pattern. I’ve taken the most elegant 20th century fashions and modified them for women with a 21st century lifestyle.

After three decades of dressmaking and design experience I’ve brought together my love of beautiful fabrics with my passion for vintage to make sure that each of these feminine, wearable garments can work for every body shape.

Fabulous fit is the key 

Ready to wear clothes rarely give a perfect fit because there is no such thing as a ‘standard’ body shape. The key to confidence is a fabulous fit and when you wear one of my designs you’ll be so comfortable that you may forget you’re wearing it.

Made to order - uniquely yours

I hand-craft each garment to order, carefully choosing a combination of vintage and contemporary fabrics that are perfect for you and compliment each other.

Every piece is hand finished by me to the highest standard, with fabulous linings and vintage buttons. No two garments are exactly the same.

The first designs in the new collection have just been launched. If you like what you see, get in touch  and let’s start creating something especially for you.
