We are Alice and Geraldine. We met through our love of theater and comedy when we found ourselves performing lead roles opposite each other in a newly formed theatre group.
We clicked from the start and friendship blossomed over a melting pot of lines, cakes, laughter, creativity, performance and a shared love of sewing and a passion for fashion from a bygone era.
We wanted to create a capsule wardrobe for the 21st centuary using pattens, designs and importantly the Clothing Control 41 regulations to prove despite being from an era of having very little and making do with stringent government rules at every turn, there was still colour and life in fashion, and that it is just a beautiful today as it was then.
We hope that you enjoy putting your best foot forward in our beautiful handmade clothes and accessories, created using authentic designs, patterns, materials and machines from wartime Britain.
