Kelly Doust

Kelly Doust has been scouring flea markets and charity stores for vintage fashion, fabrics and homewares from her early teens, and making and reinventing things in her own trial-and-error way since she was a girl. Her favourite things, in no particular order, are tea, clothes, friends, home, crafternoons, and her husband and daughter. Kelly has worked in book publishing and public relations in Sydney, Hong Kong and London, and as a freelance writer. Kelly is the author of The Crafty Minx, The Crafty Kid and A Life in Frocks.
