Profile for Arkathwyn - Threads
I have had the pleasure of working with clients for the past 3 decades. It has brought me invaluable experience in design, pattern drafting & construction techniques with a variety of textiles - from formal to active wear.
Historical fashions are, quite simply, mesmerizing to me, as they embody the grace & elegance of embellishment and incredible detail. I enjoy designing with the flavour of "times past" and hope to inspire the joy of creating/sewing in others.
