Hello, I'm Janine.
I bring joy through my handmade boudoir dolls which are full of delightfully glamorous nostalgia.
Each one is lovingly and carefully made, with impeccable attention to detail. Inspired by my fascination with movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood, the glamour of classic burlesque legends and pin-up girls, these timeless dolls are to be loved and treasured for many years.
From my time as a costume maker in film, theatre and burlesque, I accumulated an abundance of vintage fabrics and fabric offcuts that are too small to make human-sized costumes. Instead of discarding them, I chose to repurpose these fabrics into miniature costumes for dolls, each one with a unique history behind them.
I work in my home sewing room in the beautiful valleys of South Wales, to the soundtrack of Elvis. When I’m not sewing, I’m entertaining audiences as an international burlesque performer, puppeteering or practising my lasso.
