For years I have sewn children’s clothes to sell, and this was my first full collection, using GOTS certified organic fabrics, photographed down by our local river. I stopped sewing to sell when I realised I needed to maintain a creative outlet that was for escapism not business but continue to sew for myself and my children.

When relaxing I can now be found in my studio with my 3 sewing machines, surrounded by mountains of fabric, and usually a child or two telling me exactly what they want me to sew and which of my pattern designs belongs to them – we have plenty of costume requests!
