in Vintage Sewing

Hi guys! Its me again (year 12 student making vintage dress/gloves/felt pillbox hat  inspired by grandmothers 1950s/60s dresses)!

As part of my project I have to have a brand name- any ideas? I am completely stuck!

Thanks for all your lovely comments and tips

Hello MissMel,

What about utilising your grandmother’s name in some way?


missmel January 27, 2013 at 8:21 pm

her name is mary- but she is of greek/egyptian heritage so she is also called maritza, i will have to think!!! :)

this one is good!! :)

You can always go with your online persona name… Miss Mel :)
Think about the big names in vintage fashion- they used their own names in some way… Maritza is definitely unique enough to use :)

I think Maritza is great. Very unique if your grandma is your inspiration, you’re giving her instant credit!

Part of my inspiration is also enivronmentally sustainable fabrics (as I am using hemp/organic cotton material for the dress- its a lavender colour aswell) I dont know how I could tie this in???
All of your suggestions and tips have been great so far! Thankyou so much! <3
