Designing, pattern cutting, fitting, grading, teaching, styling, all elements of garment manufacture. Often this is bespoke vintage inspired garments for individual clients. She also does manufacture/finishing work for other designers such as hemming silk scarves, and does freelance costume work for clients such as the Brunton Theatre. Typical clients are textile designers, artists, individual clients, independent boutiques, photographers, stylists, bloggers. A fully equipped studio with pattern cutting table is also available (with space for 4 participants if holding classes), with relevant equipment/machinery for designing and manufacturing garments. Emily also enjoys collaborating with local textile designers. In addition to this Emily runs workshops including Hawaiian shirt masterclass, silk blouse masterclass, frilly knickers workshop and A-line skirt workshop. No previous knowledge is required. As Emily works by herself most of the time bear in mind it can be fairly labour intensive and so she can't necessarily complete large orders quickly (depending on what they are of course).

Emily got into designing initially because she was really into the 1950s and was ordering clothes from California. She started making the clothes for herself and then got commissioned to make them for other people. For the last 3 years she has have been working out of her Edinburgh studio making commissions as well as selected ready to wear and accessories for local boutiques.
