About Velvet Claw

I work on my own and make everything by hand in my home Sewing Studio.  I have always loved making and creating all kinds of things and for years have made clothes for myself and then also for my daughters ever since they were little. It’s great creating something different that no one else will be wearing that fits properly.  Being only 5′ 2″  comes with it’s own set of problems as standard sized clothing nearly always needs to have the proportions tweaked and altered to fit properly. Creativity must be in my blood as I come from a line of silk weavers, tailors, dress makers, milliners, artists and designers who have passed on their skills to me, which is probably why I am so passionate about what I do!

Nowadays, however, my main passion is for the elegant styles and fashions of the 1930’s and 1940’s with a particular interest in WWII British home front clothing using the types of fabrics and designs that would have been used at that time.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

Whether you are looking for vintage, dancer or wee Velvet Tinytots stuff  I am sure I can create something very special that you would want to get your claws on!!
