About Me and My Moonflower Adventure
Hello, and welcome to Moonflower. I'm Charlotte, a Geotechnical Engineer with inner creativity for all things handmade, and Moonflower is my creative adventure for my inner seamstress.
Like most who enjoy sewing, I was shown the basics by my grandmother and mother as a child on a vintage treadle singer sewing machine. I sewed at every opportunity, from wonky stuffed animals in my teens, to functional soft-furnishings in my twenties.
I attended formalised evening classes in my early thirties and was introduced to jersey and children’s clothing patterns following the birth of my second child.
I love the individuality that comes from handmade clothes and started to make myself equally unique leggings. My hobby flourished into a desire to make clothes more aligned to my personality using custom designed fabrics.
As well as embracing my love of all things colourful, my Moonflower Adventure will allow me to explore unique fabric patterns, and I will be offering garments for your own individual style made from exclusively designed fabrics that reflect my love of Engineering, Natural Sciences, and Quirky Geometric Patterns. I will be working with and supporting other small businesses where I can, and look forward to seeing where my creative adventure takes me …
