I have spent the last 16 years designing Lingerie for high street brands such as Marks and Spencer. My favourite part of the process has always been hand drafting my own patterns, sketching beautiful fashion illustrations for my boards and working with fabrics.
By day I was designing bras and knickers, in my spare time my hobbies were ballet dancing, buying enormous quantities of American designer brand fabrics to craft with.
I had my little girl in May 2015 and whilst it might be hard to imagine I actually found myself designing and sewing more than ever! The whole 'sleep whilst the baby sleep' thing didn't really apply to me. Despite being sleep deprived I felt so alive when I could be creative again.
In 2016 I launched Studio Jepson, my online shop stocking gorgeous fabrics by famous brands such as Michael Miller, Blend fabrics and Rico design. I also launched Jepson Junior, a hand crafted, custom made childrenswear line using the most unique prints and my hand drafted embroideries.
My Studio Jepson blog features step by step illustrated tutorials on how to make my all my favourite projects.
I hope you all like it
