About The Designer

Hey Rocking Babe – I’m Bridie A.K.A Born to Thread, creative director and maker of custom leather jackets and bespoke clothing.


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.

 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 custom leather jackets which are all handmade form scratch from my small studio in Yorkshire.

What does this mean? well from the patterns to the cutting out to the making up and finishing off is all done by me, pretty cool huh?

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

A true investment piece that will last a lifetime.

 Ever since I was little I was always draping fabric around everything, drawing cool dresses and even cutting holes in the middle of the fabric to make something! (sorry mum, at least I know how to cut out properly now!)

I always admired my mum and grandma making clothes and every opportunity I got to help I would, so I guess my passion stated young.


Little Fashionista Bridie

I studied fashion and textiles throughout college which enabled me to study at Cleveland College of Art and Design, graduating in 2008 with a FDA Fashion Production.

Following with a BA(Hons) in Fashion Enterprise graduating in 2010, developing skills in advanced pattern cutting, garment construction and business.

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

I always knew I wanted to run my own business and from this Born To Thread was born.

Curious to see what I offer in my bespoke service then you can read more about it here or visit my online shop and invest in one of my limited run designs and customised leather jackets for badass brides and rocking babes

Inspired very much by  ’slow fashion’ I love to work alongside my clients creating one of a kind handmade garments for women who aren’t afraid to stand out from the crowd in what they wear. 

*Slow fashion –  is not your typical throw away fashion  trend, it is a movement that prides itself on been sustainable and is made to last.
Buy less, choose quality.
