Sister Susie

This next post is all about the wondefully talented Lisa Lipman of ultra cool brand Sister Susie. Lisa designs and handmakes the most wonderful collection using nothing but the finest vintage scarves. These clothes are just gorgeous and the scarves are divine. Any of the pieces from this collection would be perfect in your suitcase for your honeymoon.

Sister Susie doesn't have a website yet but is available at a few select outlets (see below) or come along to the fair to see Lisa's wondeful creations in person.

Sister Susie was launched nearly a year ago , the name inspired by the old First World War song "Sister Susie's sewing shirts for soldiers" . Since then this line of tunics, skirts and dresses made from vintage scarves has been stocked in uber chic boutiques round the UK and in San Francisco. They can be found at Prey in Bath, the Laundry in Wells and at Fanny Adams, Blagdon.

I create clothes from stunning vintage scarves, embellished with old buttons, velvets, chiffons, and occasionally mens’ ties, each one is hand made and utterly unique! They are gorgeously feminine but also modern and hip. They marry a Boho -retro look, capturing the old but in a very of- the- moment way. The designs are simple, but the flow across the form is very flattering.

I am a TV producer who makes documentaries. With some time on my hands, I got sewing and have found that women LOVE these clothes.
