Designing, sewing and making all things vintage inspired since 2004, they now concentrate on making one-off pieces and hosting knicker making and sewing parties so you can buy, but you can also create. Why not book the perfect Hen Party that includes learning how to make a pair of French knickers with vintage lace and a garter for the bride? There are many different packages on offer with Cox & Baloney and the Hotel du Vin where you can round off the creativity with cocktails or a high tea and very soon, Flo-Jo will be moving into their very own boutique venue on Gloucester Road. Here they’ll have a retro style 50s kitchen inspired workshop space, filled with sewing machines.
At the fair, Delia will be bringing a gorgeous selection of knickers and garters to show you just what you can make using vintage silks and lace. She’ll have some of the Fancy Pants knicker making kits too. They’re a great introductory sewing project for lovers of vintage and make perfect bridesmaids and hen party gifts. Each kit includes a fully graded reusable pattern and you can choose from their range of cute cottons, frilly elastic and satin ribbons.
If you’re after something to buy, all their lingerie is handmade in their studio in Bristol and each piece is unique. From cottons to satins to the sheer luxury of their limited edition vintage silk collection, each item can be gift wrapped to make that purchase extra special. Their website has plenty of gift ideas from aprons to eyemasks, all in gorgeous retro designs. There’s even a haberdashery section so you can buy the materials direct and do check out the double sided bunting. Delia will be bringing some on the day to show you just how fantastic it can make a room look. There’s plenty available to hire for your wedding or to make yourself with her kits. Flo-Jo is a fun place to create and they have expert advice to guide even the total beginner in the art of knicker making.
Come along and meet Delia at this year’s fair and happy knicker making!
