About Jeanne

It all began when my father, an Electronic Engineer, bought home a tonneau cover for a MGB Classic Car to repair. I was intrigued to watch him do this, to see how to find interesting and creative solutions to give new life to something old and much loved.

My interest grew into a passion and I decided to study Art and Design and Pattern Cutting at Brighton College, my sewing skills improved and I gained a wider knowledge within the field of needlecraft, from dressmaking to seaming, and tailoring

Since then I have become more involved in designing and altering clothes for friends and family and look forward to being able to offer my experience and passion to you.
