Announcement   As all Rutlandfairie creations are designed and handmade on an individual basis they are all one-off items. There will never be another artwork, garment or magical artifact exactly like any other. Although similar items will be made, each piece is cut & sewn or crafted individually from eco-sourced or up-cycled materials including both vintage and new fabrics and haberdashery or from natural materials.

If you are not sure about sizing, fitting, colour, details or anything else PLEASE CONVO BEFORE BUYING so that we can make sure everything is perfect for you.

I will take returns but the return shipping is at the buyer's cost and must be by recorded delivery and insured so can be very expensive from outside the UK. PLEASE CONVO if you are uncertain of anything as I am very happy to help you in every way.

Rutlandfairie is a Fairie Godmother and reiki master so all her creations are imbuded with the magical energy of the universe.

Rutlandfairie would like to make all your wishes come true and will try to make garments to your individual requirements if this is possible.

Rutlandfaire studied fashion design at St Martins School of Art in London, UK where she was a student alongside Rifat Osbek, Stephen Jones and singer Sade. She is part of the generation who invented punk and dated someone who "almost joined the Sex Pistols but had a lucky escape".

Description was not quite accurate told about the collar but not told about side belts. One was badly worn and unsightly in my opinion.

Well Christine you bought a vintage item and I sent you a £5 voucher to spend on etsy. So you got very good value for your money. Perhaps you need to only buy NEW items in future.

About

Old hippies never dye, they just change their suits into rainbows.

Rutlandfairie sprang out of a need to finance my Third Age as a Fairie Godmother. Divorce, kids growing & a London based would-be DJ boyfriend conspired to revive the designer in me to get up and take her creations down South to sell. Rutlandfaire was born & got invited to lots & lots of psy-trance parties in clubs & warehouses and then to festivals. Then another change & the need to sell during the winter (or it is hard biscuits for both Luke the lurcher & me). So then Rutlandfairie found her way onto etsy and here we are :-D

I was making clothes for myself long before I left school and so the passage to arts foundation & then to study fashion at the best Art School in the world as a done deal. St Martin's in London encouraged individualism and that has stayed with me.

My green principles come from a lifetime of grounding in not wasting resources - ancestors who had to collect lost parachutes in WWII to make wedding dresses and generations of tailors, dressmakers & milliners who could concoct a dream from available scraps & treasures.

Most people who buy from me are creative in their own right - artists, musicians, poets - or healers seeking to make the world a better place - be they therapists, teachers or gardeners :-D

Welcome to my world :-D

Sizing in the UK is different from in the USA and EU - I'm not sure about the rest of the world. My listings mostly have the ACTUAL MEASUREMENTS of the garment. This is the measurement taken from the extreme edge of the garments it is NOT the sizing. So a garment measuring 40inches will be to fit NO LARGER than a 38inch bust or chest unless you want it to be SKIN TIGHT. If you dont see enough measurements PLEASE CONVO BEFORE BUYING so I can provide them.

Hope that helps but if not PLEASE CONVO so I can help you further.
