Do you have a special occasion coming up? Perhaps your wedding, a party or an event? Would you like to feel extra special on your big day? You’ll find a variety of contemporary headpieces in my millinery shop, each handcrafted with care in my Adelaide studio. They’re perfect for brides, bridesmaids, flower girls, mothers of the bride or groom, wedding guests, party goers and anyone else who would like to stand out from the crowd and add a touch of glamour to their day or evening.
Or have you always wanted to make your own shoes but thought it was too hard or required tools and machinery you don't have at home? Perhaps you already make your own clothes and would like to learn some new skills so you can make your own shoes, headwear and accessories too? Or maybe you just love the feeling you get from making things and are looking for a fun new way of expressing yourself?
The information you'll find on my blog will help you achieve any of these goals by teaching you about the tools, materials and techniques you need to successfully make your own shoes, headwear and accessories at home.
I have also created some PDF pattern booklets available in my Etsy shop that contain detailed instructions and full colour photographs to guide you step-by-step through the making process. Before you know it, you'll be proudly wearing your own handmade shoes, headwear and accessories!
I'm Louise, a shoemaker and milliner from Adelaide, Australia. Growing up I was lucky enough to spend a lot of time sewing and making (thanks Mum!!) and have always loved learning new crafts. I trained in both shoemaking and millinery, and now spend my days creating beautiful, contemporary headpieces and accessories to help women to feel extra special on their big day. I also love to share the enjoyment and satisfaction of making with others, so I created my blog to be a place where I can share ideas and information to help you get started with making your own headpieces, shoes and accessories at home.
