LadyStella Creations was established in 1994 to provide wools, fabrics, original clothes and authentic costumes based on period designs for theatre, film and television, as well as private commissions for weddings and public appearances.


These exclusive designs are now available and made-to-order, together with you, as unique custom-made wardrobes for men, women and children. Designs also now include Punky Fish originals.


 We also created the original SAY NO TO PLASTICS Campaign

The next step involves creating a pattern and using it to create a prototype garment in calico. This will give you an idea of the look, shape and movement to check if it is what you intend.


The Block


As a basis of all your clothes, you will probably use your personal 'block'. This is a template design that corresponds to your own measurements. This template is used as the basis of all your patterns saving you time, and guaranteeing a perfect fit each time. This frees you up to concentrate on the other aspects of design such as colour, fabric or story. (You will learn how to accurately measure yourself and create your own block, to take away, in the LadyStella sewing classes.)
