I wanted to create a secret garden story with my dresses - a grown up version. Imagine creeping floral designs that demand a ruby lipstick or a rose blush. Granny boots, grey stockings and cashmere cardigans.

Inspired by gloomy skies and climbing roses.

Ancient buildings and Victorian Jewelry.

Emerald satin trims and tarnished silver tea sets.

This dress is of my own design, and lovingly created with attention to detail in my home studio.

It is finished with a self fabric ruffle on the neckline and sleeves. It zips up the side of the dress.

Your dress will arrive with a reversible self fabric sash, to cinch your waist, tie in your hair or perhaps wear as a head scarf, it is up to you.


Please note that I am a self taught dressmaker, and be aware your dress may come with a few minor quirks that I refuse to call imperfections. These are the hallmarks of a homemade item.

Thanks so much for checking out my dress! I have plenty more in store including ready to ship - be sure to take a peek :)
