Lovechild Boudoir is operated in Yorkshire, England by Jayni herself. With every thrum of the sewing machine, she breaths life into the past through her creations. A firm believer in reusing and recycling, a lot of the pieces in Lovechild Boudoir’s inventory are made from fabric scraps. Scraps from earlier bustle skirts and jackets to being completely re-made from an older piece. Being clever, artistic and knowing when and how to re-use materials has given this vintage designer a well rounded edge.
