Loving the hat dahhling!

Summarise Sophie please

I’m 24 and run my own vintage fashion business. I love to make things, bake cakes, and spend time with my friends and family.


Why did you join the WI?


I was intrigued and wanted to find out what it was about! It has introduced me to new experiences and I’ve met so many lovely people.


What is your favourite bake?


That is a hard one! One of my faves is pavlova, topped with fresh fruit from our allotment.


What would your last meal on earth be?


Afternoon tea with all my friends and family!

Sweet tooth then?


Yes! I can’t resist freshly baked scones with homemade jam and cream.

What has been your favourite WI meeting to date?


I think it has to be the last one on Fashions of 1915. The talk was really interesting and I learnt a lot, and there was such a buzz in the room as we all tried on the corsets!

Finally, please summarise yourself in three words.


Eccentric, creative and independent
(that is surprisingly hard to do!)
