Welcome to Sweet Violet

My name is Kate and I'm the designer and maker behind Sweet Violet clothing.

I have always had a passion for the past, and for traditional techniques that take us back to a slower time of handcrafted quality and works of true beauty.

Here you'll find vintage inspired romantic and feminine clothing, as well as historical reproduction clothing.

Every item is completely handmade by me in my in-house studio to the highest standards of quality, using the best quality fabrics. I can't wait to make something special for you!
