I’m Kathryn, a designer and dressmaker based in Liverpool.
After graduating from Manchester School of Art with a degree in Fashion Design I began working alongside my mum, Lynn in her alterations business. Lynn specialises in bridal alterations and having always worked from home I had the opportunity to customise and create one-off pieces with her including boleros, veils along with flowergirl dresses and from this developed my love of dressmaking. I knew this was something I wanted to pursue as a career and it was here that I found a gap in the market for beautifully hand crafted dresses for girls up to the age of 14 suitable for any special occasion including christenings, weddings and holy communions.
My aesthetic is soft and feminine and this is reflected in my collection. Through combining my love of classic silhouettes from vintage fashion and modern, playful additions of bows and embellishments I aim to provide timeless designs to last creating family heirlooms that can be treasured forever.
Over time the business has grown and we now have a lovely boutique where we are both based in Childwall, Liverpool. Dresses are available to view here and you are welcome to pop in for a browse or to make an appointment. Alternatively you can order online via email or through my Etsy shop here.
Often people are looking for bespoke alterations and we can offer this service too. Lynn has over 25 years of experience within the industry specifically in bridal and eveningwear. Please note this is by appointment only and prices guides are available upon request.
