I had a moment in the lime light on The BBC's Great British Sewing Bee this week. I had a great time down in London for the filming and was interviewed by Claudia Winkleman about Sewing Bee's during World War II. Watch it on BBC iplayer catch up!
Welcome to my website.
I specialise in the construction of quality made-to-measure historical costume for re-enactment and the theatre, film and heritage industries. Each project is extensively researched to insure the highest level of accuracy is attained in the design and construction of the garment. I welcome personal commissions for historical costume from all periods, from simple shirts through to whole ensembles. You can find a guideline of prices under the Construction page of this site but please do not hesitate to contact me for a quote tailored to your needs and budget.
In addition, I have a unique range of lively and informative talks centred on my own research and collection of antique and vintage garments. I also present demonstrations of historical sewing techniques and costume construction for events. Based in York, I am happy to travel to and present at any venue and tailor to your event's needs.
