LATEST UPDATE: I'm having a little break on making the poodle skirts as we have just welcomed a new baby girl into our family. Feel free to email me to see where I am at if you need one. I'll be back and running from 5th Feb 2015.
Hello! I'm Sandra V...
Hello! I am Sandra Vincent, and I own and run the website www.sandrav.com.au from Melbourne, Australia.
I sew under my label SANDRA V, selling custom and ready made handmade rock and roll skirts. Also known as poodle skirts, full circle skirts, 50s skirts or grease skirts.
Through this site, you can also read my blog and learn about vintage styling.
I am a long time fan of vintage fashion, especially the style and fashion of the 1940's, and 1950's, vintage fashion, to mid century furniture and lifestyle. You can also follow my journeys of vintage love through my instagram account and facebook group page.
A bit of background...
I owned a 1950's style, rockabilly fashion store, Sandra V, in Melbourne for 4 years, before shifting to an online presence in June 2013. After selling lots of rockabilly and vintage style fashion for men, women and children, I decided to concentrate on my first love, and that is sewing under my label SANDRA V (which has been in operation since 2009).
I make great quality 1950's poodle and rock 'n' roll circle skirts in cotton, not cheap fancy dress fabric. Very popular with rock n roll dancers, an affordable way to dress-up for a 1950s, or 'grease' party, great for rockabilly lovers and hotrod shows, comfortable for everyday wear for everybody and shape, from petite to plus size.
