Otome means “maiden” in Japanese.

The Otome Sewing Bee is a J-fashion and pretty vintage dressmaking and crafts community in the UK, hosting monthly workshops (mainly in London) for our members.  Projects have included ‘one-day’ skirts, novelty bloomers, embroidered pendants, corsetry, cold porcelain clay and cardigan decorating. If you are interested in joining you can find details of meets in the Facebook group. We accept new members who display active interest in wearing the aesthetic we embrace.
