I have been sewing for a long time, mostly motivated by an inability to find trousers that fit properly. (I haven’t bought a pair of trousers in over 15 years). I have always loved historical costume and, as a child, would faithfully re-create the costumes that I would see in ladybird books. I probably had the best-dressed Sindys in South Bucks.
A brief flirtation with the LARP society at university got me back into costume, and when I formed Lady Georginanna, I needed to learn about period costume properly. I became very well acquainted with hand-sewn eyelets.
Here are some examples of the kind of sewing that I have done, along with some recent commissions. I mostly just sew for myself now and pals.
