Land army girl 
Since the first year of the Dig for Victory Show I have been making land army girl overalls for volunteers and stallholders that like to look the part. I've made the pattern myself featuring a wide leg trouser and front bib with straps that cut across the back and buttons on the front.

Bridesmaid dress 2014

This dreamy bridesmaids dress went all the way to Italy! It is a handmade pattern which features a halter-neck dress in chiffon overlaying a lovely light lavender silk dress.




Bridesmaids dresses 2013

These royal blue bridesmaids dresses were made from chiffon and silk, with a gathered sleeve and long skirt. The bride had some photos for inspiration and together we came up with this dress which I hand drafted a pattern for.



One shoulder dress

A handmade dress made from vintage cotton and a hand drafted pattern.


The green cotton dress

Mini dress in a pea green heavy weight cotton with pleats around the neckline and waist.




White Collar dresses 2007-2013

For these dresses I used dressmaking books from the 60's to draw the patterns. They are babydoll inspired and have details such as collars and pockets. I've also made some Moonrise Kingdom inspired dresses, see below.













Summer 2008

Summer dresses with fun twists. I have made the patterns for all of these dresses and wanted to experiment with different kinds of techniques and cuts. I love the pink tulle bomb below which consists of 10 layers of gathered tulle. Seven out of these nine dresses were made using fabric bought second hand, I really like reusing material and get inspired by the fabrics that I work with.














Summer 2005

Dresses, tops and skirts designed and made by me when I was in high school. These were the first dresses that I ever drafted myself.
