jolie femme gives vintage bed linen a second life


Some things never change. Like how the linen cupboard offers endless potential, whether you’re a wee one playing dress-ups, or a grown-up sewing your own duds. Isabelle Campbell is one lady who spends her days doing the latter. As the designer and maker behind Jolie Femme, she gathers sweet, pre-loved bed sheets and turns them into flowy, feminine threads. Isabelle cuts and sews each piece with the help of her mum, who shares her love for vintage patterns and no-waste design. If you love puff sleeves, smock dresses and prairie skirts, stop by the Jolie Femme shop to see more.
