High Rockabilly 2017

The girls and I decided to take a long weekend off and head to the beach for some Rockabilly fun. I had a last minute distress call from Deke Dickenson to say his luggage had been lost and could I bring him some shirts so I stopped off at the shop and picked up a few to see him through the weekend. We arrived in Barcelona and took the tour bus to see the sights and a lunch stop in the food market before taking the train out to Calafell.... Read More

Christmas is coming

Christmas is one of my favourite times of year. I started making our Christmas dresses early this year so we had a great selection of Novelty Prints and Satin. Some of the Christmas Kitties still hadn’t arrived at the time of writing this so we can still look forward to seeing them. I worked really hard and it has certainly paid off. I know it is sad when you miss out on one of the special prints but if we don’t keep it short and sweet we wouldn’t be able... Read More

All the fun of the fair at Dreamland, Margate

When I was a kid one of the most exciting things to happen was the fair coming to town. The rides would always have Rock ‘n’ Roll playing, and Teddy Boys with slicked back hair and creepers would tend them.     Today, you might be lucky and a vintage fairground may come to your town, or you can bring on your own luck and visit Margate’s wonderful Dreamland. With the site being used for entertainment since 1874, it seemed the perfect place for a 1950s Fun Park.    ... Read More

For that special day

I don’t know about you ladies but I think the 1950s typify the ultimate style for a bride. I was 19 when I ran off to Niagara Falls to get married – I’ve always been impetuous. I was living in Toronto at the time and the Mister sold his ’59 Cadillac and we hopped onto a Greyhound bus to Niagara. I didn’t even have time to make a new dress which is a bit of a shame since the world was at my fingertips. I married in a pale blue... Read More

Fresh New Florals!

I’m sure you ladies have seen all our lovely new florals this season. Since I know many of you just can’t get enough of these dresses we have decided that most of the prints will be limited edition. This means we will probably only do one run rather than carry the fabric for a whole season. Most of the new florals will be in the sateen fabrics which I know you ladies love as it has a very slight amount of elastane in it for a more comfortable fit. So... Read More
