Claire and Cherry Pie


Hi there!  I’m Claire, thanks for visiting my blog; Claire and Cherry Pie!
I am a milliner, amateur seamstress, lover of mid-century vintage style, dabbler in many creative exploits and singer hailing from Melbourne, Australia.  I also live day to day with a mix of Chronic illnesses, chief amongst those is Dysautonomia.

Here you can read about my creative activities (from the devoutly passionate love affairs to the fleeting fascinations) and performing endeavours as my alter ego Miss Sugar St Claire, alongside my journey with chronic illness  – with a few fur-kid photos thrown in of course!  I love to share my interests with people who might be similarly interested and I hope you’re going to be one of them!  Along the way I’d also like to introduce you to some wonderfully talented and creative people that I find really inspiring; sharing is caring!

This year I have vowed to make more clothes than I buy. I have quite a stash of fabric sitting there waiting to be turned into something fabulous and many patterns ready to be the tool to do just that.  I love the clothing styles of the 40’s and 50’s but my measurements often fall just outside that of most vintage clothes.  There are lots of great reproduction clothes out there, but everyone has them already!   So now I want to get down to business creating some new, unique items for my wardrobe, along with other exciting projects along the way.  Who’s with me?

Thanks again for stopping by!
Below you will find a bit more info about me and about Dysautonomia to peruse if you care to.
