I love to sew and have done all my life. I have recently started sewing full time after 10 years in secondary eduation. I had been working at both, but decided to quit my job to follow my passion and create beautiful garments for ladies and girls. I LOVE sewing and cannot think of any better way to make my living doing something which makes not only me happy but also the ladies I sew for.  I view it as a privilege!

 I spend many hours sourcing beautiful prints to make into special 'one off' items. I work single handedly from home in my upstairs studio, which is actually my bedroom, to create feminine, flattering dresses and skirts in reclaimed vintage fabrics.

  I try to keep my prices as low as possible, but at times it is difficult finding good quality fabric, this explains why prices can vary slightly at times.  As most fabrics are reclaimed can be up to 70 years old.  Please treat it with the care it deserves and wash on a hand-wash setting or delicate cycle.

On my Lofty Frocks website you will find ready to ship dresses and skirts, but if you require a different size please do contact me by email or the contact me page so we can work together to create an item in a frabric of your choice in your size.  You can view my fabric library on Instagram @loftyfrocksfabrics (you can click the instagram link on the home page) to choose your perfect custom-made dress.  Please allow around 2 to 4 weeks for custom-made orders at busy times.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting me. I look forward to hearing from you....
