sew what mcr

Sew What MCR is an independent clothing business ran by Anita Smith from her studio in Islington Mill, a creative hub on the border between Salford and Manchester.


I design and make garments inspired by vintage patterns, using modern fabrics and colours. I believe in making clothes that can be worn from one season to the next and that provide women with key items that work for them and their style - not bowing to fleeting trends. 


Items featured on the website have been made using fabric collected by me over the last decade, meaning many of them are unique. However, all garments can be made to order in alternative colours, fabrics and sizes, as well as the option to customise designs to fit a particular style or preference.


I am always happy to take commissions and provide a free consultation to discuss clients’ wardrobe needs.
