About me

Occupation Maker of uniforms and clothing
Location Weymouth, Dorset, United Kingdom
Introduction I’ve been a costumier and researcher for 13 years and have worked for many organisations such as the BBC, The National Trust, Shakespeare’s Globe and English Heritage. My specialist area is recreating historical clothing and uniforms. I have spent a lot of time studying original examples of clothing and taking patterns from these garments. My interest is creating historical clothes from these patterns and replicating the techniques of the period. I have a small collection of vintage clothes, jewellery and accessories which I put on display when I am invited to give talks. I often wear my own creations and attend historical events. In addition to making historical clothing I work as a part time tour guide and also a background artiste. Even though most of my work involves visiting the past, my favourite film genre is science fiction!
Interests Horse riding, sidesaddle, archery, dance, walking, collecting vintage clothing and jewellery
