expert-interview


On our trip to Sew In Brighton, we managed to get a few minutes with Kat, the owner and founder of the business! She told us all about how it all started and where her passion for sewing came from.


Q: How did Sew in Brighton begin?


A: It began because I got RSI doing an office job, I am a fashion designer by trade, but when I moved to Brighton I was doing an office job. I was thinking maybe I should teach something and thought I could put my fashion designer past to good use – I know how to sew and do pattern cutting. So, I decided to do that and starting some classes in my living room. I then hired a venue to do a pattern cutting course and it took off from there. I got this place as somewhere to work, and my website took off. I decided to put on classes and they gained popularity and just started getting fuller and fuller so it turned into a full-time job!


Q: Where did your passion for sewing come from?


A: When I was little I was always drawing people in clothes and cats in clothes and drew lots of outfits. I was really into art, and I used to make some of my own clothes, jewellery and toys. My sister and I used to have stalls at local fares where we would sell our creations. I went to fashion school when I was 16, and it all started from there! I did four years of fashion and then I was making more clothes and my sister and I would make these incredible outfits for our nights out when we went clubbing.

When I finally finished studying I set up a fashion label and my outfits ended up in my shop! So it was all very continual from a young age, it all kind of merges through until now. I had a fashion label for ten years called Wit & Wisdom which had lots of corsets, with sequins and little jeans, tiny skirts and fur collared waist coats. But I'd call it 'well-made party wear' - all very well made and  good quality clothes.

Q: What's your favourite thing about running these kinds of courses?


A: I really like the challenge of fitting, getting things to fit people that have figures that the clothes you buy in the shops don't fit. I like the general run of the business, I'm quite resourceful by nature and solution focused. So running a business means that you have to constantly find solutions to everything and find a better way of doing things all the time and I weirdly quite like admin as well. I really enjoy working for myself and it's just so different to working for someone else.


Q: Do you make a lot of your own clothes?


A: I make all my own jeans, and that's about it because I'm so busy. I do a lot of my own alterations. The plan is to do more sewing - always! But work gets in the way, especially because I'm doing it all day.


20161115_111402Q: Do you have any plans for the future?


A: Not in particular, more or less to keep the business how it is really. I am happy with the size and scale and business of it all at the minute. Perhaps some more people in certain classes and maybe get some more time to do one on one fittings for people. My main goal is just to be happy!


Q: What's your favourite piece that someone has made in one of your classes?


A: My favourite piece would probably a vintage 50s style dress someone made, with fitted petticoats underneath and nice prints, big petticoats and clean cuts.
