Born and raised in the rural Scottish Highlands I was taught to sew at a very early age.
From basic dressmaking to embroidery I have developed my skills through costume
making as part of my re-enactment hobby. I'm now based in the Midlands, near Lichfield.
My passion for creating new items of kit and clothing for both myself and friends has never
diminished and I consider myself fortunate enough to be in a position to be able
to produce high quality items of clothing for fellow re-enactors. I produce various items, from
shifts and scarves for the lowliest of wenches right through to metal laced military coats
for the Regimental Colonel.
The vast majority of my items are completely hand stitched. However, certain items are machine stitched or have minor
elements of machining on them. These areas are always advised of prior to an order being undertaken.
I am also happy to take on any commission work. Any period and style can be undertaken
as long as specifications of pattern or design can be supplied. I'm always looking to
expand my horizons and skills so even if you don't see what you require on my site then
please feel free to contact me about any requests.
