Helen Mirren wants her own dressing gown line

Helen+Mirren When she’s not too busy acting, Helen Mirren likes to sew.

Speaking to Notebook magazine, she has revealed that often makes clothes for her family and, although she admits she’s not very good at it, the Oscar winner is proud of a dressing gown she made for herself.

She said: “I do dressmaking. I’ve got my mother’s old sewing machine, which I love. I make horrible things that are awful – although I did make my sister a good skirt, she liked her skirt.

“I made myself a nice dressing gown for backstage at the theatre too. Maybe I should have a dressing gown line, there are not enough nice dressing gowns in the world…

“I did want to make my own dress for red carpet events but my husband stopped me. He said, ‘I am saving you from yourself’, but I’m still going to do it one of these days.”
