About Petra Bradley Prints

Petra Bradley Prints

Lovely old fabrics re-made into beautiful and practical things. Artist, Seamstress, Hoarder.

For many years I worked as a Theatre Wardrobe Supervisor, and this is where my lifelong love of fabrics, collecting and the social history of clothing and materials started.

I was still at primary school when I became addicted to jumble sales. I would go along to our village ones on my own, and developed the elbows out, sort one way or get clobbered by a large Yorkshire woman, from an early age.
One of my first bargains was a fantastic Military jacket, which I brought in the 1960s, and gave to my uncle who was huge Beatles fan, and a bit of a dandy.

As well as making and selling, I exhibit at many a vintage Fair in York where I live. I still have the Theatre wardrobe skills to find unloved clothing and bring it back to life with some TLC. At these events I love to complement my clothing with bits of china, bottles, glassware and generally anything old and pretty that takes my eye.
