The Seamstress of Bloomsbury stands for authentic details and original patterns with modern fit

The story of The Seamstress of Bloomsbury dates back to 1939, when a young woman named Lillian Wells was apprenticed to one of British high society's leading dressmakers. Lillian quickly became keen on both designing and sewing, and it wasn't long before she had become a household name in the higher social strata both at home and abroad - so well known that she was given the nickname 'The Seamstress of Bloomsbury'.
Lillian's beautiful designs were brought back to life in the early 2010s by her close friend Mike, who inherited many of her original drawings and designs, on the condition that he recreate them in her spirit. Mike kept his word and in 2012 he started the label which he named The Seamstress of Bloomsbury, as a tribute to Lillian Wells. Mike and the team behind the brand make sure that their designs are as faithful to Lillian's drawings as possible, and everything from the closure mechanisms and material to the sewing details are the same as the originals - only the size/fit has been changed so that it suits today's women.
All Bloomsbury's clothing is made in their signature rayon crepe de chine fabric. It is a natural material that feels soft against the skin and allows it to breathe. The structure of the rayon crepe de chine is absolutely fantastic and it really adds an extra vintage touch to the clothes!
In Mondo Kaos, we have a good selection of The Seamstress of Bloomsbury both in the store and here on the webshop, which includes dresses , blouses & shirts as well as skirts in their very authentic vintage style, and we are really proud to carry the brand, which is a of England's leading vintage clothing brands.
