Royal Jelly flatters every woman in it

SEWING is a life-long passion for vintage swimwear designer Andie Williams.

Miss Williams has been making her own clothes since she can remember, and is now creating wearable masterpieces for others from her home studio at Palmers Channel.

The 30-year-old is relatively new to the area, having moved from Melbourne to the Clarence Valley about a year ago.

Since then she has been working to get her label Royal Jelly Swimwear off the ground.

While her first collection is still in the works, Miss Williams headed down to the Simply Handmade Markets at Yamba for the first time yesterday to show off some of her pieces.

Describing her own style as eclectic, the designer said her swimwear took its cues from all vintage eras, particularly the 40s and 50s.

Think high waisted bottoms, bandeau tops, leopard print, and polka dots.

"I love the classic styles, I think they're really gorgeous, timeless and so flattering," she said.

"I'm working to accommodate different body shapes and sizes as well - not everyone is a size 10."
