Carli Norris, actress off the telebox, created Chocodolly back in 2012 in answer to her passion for Pin Up style. She designed the look of her character Belinda Peacock on Eastenders with a nod to classic vintage style. She has designed and created a line of vintage inspired lingerie including her Naughty Alice Babydoll, bespoke gowns and gorgeous accessories. Her debut sewing pattern will be launched in 2021. She created a Patreon channel this summer, bringing free sewing patterns, downloads and videos plus live-streams showing people how she decorates cakes, her home, her make up and hair and beautiful garments.
