This blog ties in with my Etsy shop – GinPoodle but it’s also just having a chat about what I’m making at the moment, what inspires me and what I’m reading and watching.
I am a vintage loving maker, I love the look of 1940s styling but it doesn’t suit me, my personal style is more 1950s – 60s.
Let me tell you a little bit about my background. I went to fashion college after leaving school, from there I went on to train in Savile Row before specialising in hand sewing techniques working for a bridal designer in North London, Zandra Rhodes and then freelancing for Hartnell and others.
I love hand sewing, embroidery and bead embellishment but I’m also a keen knitter and always have far too many projects on the go at once.
