About The Seamstress of Bloomsbury

 London 1939 and England is on the brink of World War 11.

Aged 14, Lilian Wells is apprenticed to a Bloomsbury dressmaker. She has little education but can already draw and paint and hand sew and embroider. As she masters the seamstress’s art, her life seems to be clearly mapped out. She will sew beautiful frocks for the aristocratic families that inhabit the mansions around Bloomsbury Square. Miss Wells spent many years perfecting her exquisite sewing skills in a little room in Hamilton House. She becomes known as ‘The Seamstress of Bloomsbury’ and her work is admired and sought after by many great Aristocratic families and Royalty.

The Seamstress of Bloomsbury brand of today is extremely privileged to have known Miss Lilian Wells, to have worked with her, and to acknowledge the tradition of her skills. Now, in keeping with her wishes, her original 1940’s patterns and designs are revived.
