Welcome to Sew 1965

Sew1965 specialises in handmade pinafore dresses using vintage - style and Liberty print fabrics. Each dress is lined and custom-made, ready to be worn and enjoyed.

Since starting in 2014, I have found my business slowly taking off – I was nominated as Fledgling Business 2015 by Country Living magazine, sell in two gift shops and am collaborating with Taylor’d Bundles - a bespoke maternity gift service. Most recently, popular X Factor contestant Dianna Vickers found my dresses through Instagram and asked me to design one especially for her.

I enjoy nothing more than going into my craft room, choosing pretty fabrics and seeing the transformation of pattern to dress before my eyes.

Please do get in touch with any questions or order enquiries, or even to say hello – I do like a good email!
