About Me

I am originally from Japan, and I have always been creative and industrious, working as a sample-maker for various designers in Tokyo from early 90s, offering a versatile service in the industry. I can sew, knit, crochet, embroider and paint print designs.
 
When I came to the UK in 2001, I started doing garment alterations for everyone, and offered limited service for designers, because my children were small and tight deadlines were not ideal.

Along the way, I found that seamstressing was a good way to meet local people and to contribute to the community. I am proud that my services are well appreciated.

Now my children are grown, I am getting back into full service, including sample and costume making for designers and productions.

It was thrilling to be a small part of some big film costume teams, crocheting for actresses such as Dame Judy Dench (Murder on the Orient Express 2017) and Margot Robbie (Mary, Queen of Scots 2019).

I have fitted so many terribly made wedding dresses my clients purchased online, in the last couple of years. This drove me to develop my own bridal range using sustainable material and I hoping to introduce them in my Etsy shop this year.
