Personalised Leather jackets  

Babes work with me one to one to create a unique investment piece that represents and connects to your personality.

Feeling frustrated because you can’t find that one luxuary custom item that doesn’t fit well and you don’t feel stylish, I get it and I have been there myself!

Confidence is a big thing especially when clothing is involved but that’s where my expertise in 15 years of sewing and design knowledge comes in to help you bring out your rebellious confident side that’s guaranteed to make you feel a badass babe.

I belive we all have a stylish rebel inside of us waiting to be released.

My idea for making leather jackets came to me in 2016 where I discovered samples of leather that looked amazing and though it would be a really fun to have a go at making one so I did and this really ignited a passion in me for leather craft.

In the summer of 2016 I taught myself how to make a jacket from an existing one I had so then developed the patterns to change the style to create the perfect fit.

Each one of my leather jackets are made from high quality leather sourced from an ethical leather merchant in Northampton UK and hand crafted by my fair hands from my small studio in North Yorkshire UK.

After having a nightmare of an experience in a wedding dress shop I stumbled across Bridie on Instagram!
All I can say is THANK GOD I did she made my crazy ideas turn into a reality. I honestly don’t think I could have found someone better who totally understood my style,ideas and what I wanted to create.
From the beginning Bridie made me feel comfortable and confident in the process ensuring that everything was how I had imagined it.
Even when I changed my mind (which happened a couple of times) Bridie was cool about it and made sure that everything was as I had imagined it.
From the design to the fittings I have had the most amazing experience and felt a million dollars in my dress. It had my style with just the right amount of tradition in it.
For anybody wanting to have something that screams them as well as making you feel a million dollars then Bridie is the girl for you!
I’ve since a had a couple more custom made items and the quality feel of the items are amazing.
I will most definitely be buying more in the future”

About Bridie

Hey Rocking Babe – I’m Bridie A.K.A Born to Thread.

My mission is to bring out your rebellious confident side through high quality handmade clothing with a feminine edge.

A true investment piece of clothing that will last a lifetime.

Born to Thread started as an idea in 2014 where I started at selling at handmade markets and feeling my way through the self employed lifestyle so after making several bespoke outfits for friends I decided in 2016 that I wanted to push my skills and specialise in bespoke womenswear and made to order products.

In this time I also taught my self how to make leather jackets which really ignited a passion for leather craft so alongside my bespoke wear I also offer plain and personalised leather jackets which are all handmade form scratch from my small studio in Yorkshire.

With over 15 years worth of sewing and pattern cutting  knowledge I continuously strive to learn and develop on my skills to make sure my products are 100% high quality.

Bad Ass Leather Jackets Handmade to last a lifetime and bring out the rebellious babe in you.
