Betty Silk Sews

The name comes from Lizzie’s Mum, who’s maiden name was Silk, so the Betty Silk sewing alias is in memory of—and thanks to—her. She fondly remembers her hands around her own, showing her how to do it with so much love.

She sews for many reasons, from sentimental to political, for nostalgia and for the future, for her mental health and for soulful wealth, but above all she is passionate about crafting a meaningful wardrobe she loves, that looks good, is sewn beautifully and doesn’t exploit anyone.

Lizzie is also an independent Creative Director, you can find out all about it here.
