Very cute, and I love that it has pockets! There was a minor problem with the belt that goes with the dress being too small, but I let her know and she sent a new belt that fits. I appreciate that responsiveness!

I love my dress to pieces!!! It's very stylish and romantic....The "Garden wild" fabric is just beautiful. It's a spring and summer flowers all together. Thank you so much Louise for making this gorgeous dress!!! I'm looking forward for more dresses...

A Darlington Original

For the last 20 years I have been collecting textiles and up-cycling them.
As a child of the 70s this era is a part of me
the vintage fabrics are really a celebration of that time
about creating a moment to balance the seriousness of it all.
Color lights our lives , makes us feel good, unapologetically good.

' Waste not want not ' are words my grandmother instilled in me at a very young age.
Born and bred in Northern England, a former dancer,
I migrated to new york city in 1998, to survive I taught myself how to sew
and began making and selling work at the West 26th St Antiques Market in Chelsea.
The markets closed in 2003, I had a child and continued working.
Sewing is meditative work , re cycling and re imagining textiles had become a way of life that I truly loved.

I joined ETSY in 2008 , it provided the perfect platform, so a huge thank you to ETSY.
I don't feel so comfortable on social media but along with everyone I've learnt to live with it.

We no longer offer custom work
I need the freedom to make what I want,life is too short to have to please everyone,
so best to please yourself.
