We are honoured to have our first Mother and Daughter team in the podcast nook – meet Alice and her daughter, Lilia who together form Alice & Co. Patterns.
** EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNT – GET 20% OFF ALICE & CO PDF PATTERNS WITH THE CODE ‘POD’ **
We had such a lovely chat getting to know these inspiring ladies – in fact we had so much to talk about we almost forget to mention their actual patterns but, as our most organised guests yet, Lilia had notes that reminded us!
We discuss where it all began for them, their book, Alice’s pattern cutting career, Lilia’s costume mounting at, arguably the best musuem in London, the V&A and how travel has been the muse behind their patterns.
They both have so much wisdom and skills in their chosen fields and it’s so lovely to see them come together on various projects to create really brilliant and unique results – they have come from a different world to most of our guests and very new to instagramming sewing community but we are sure they will be ‘sewing household names’ in no time as they have enough ideas to fill all of our wardrobes and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
This episode is sponsored by Lamazi Fabrics.
Liana and James launched this brilliant online shop earlier this year and it has already become a firm favourite in the sewing community.
This is because their fabrics are beautiful, high quality and unique.
