My name is Kathryn, I'm an Independent Designer and Dressmaker based in the UK in Liverpool specialising in Bespoke Flowergirl and Holy Communion Dresses.

After recently graduating from Manchester School of Art in July 2015 with a degree in Fashion Design, I began working alongside my mum in her small business of bridal alterations. While adjusting and reworking bridalwear I had the opportunity to customise and create one-off pieces including boleros, veils as well as flowergirl dresses and therefore this felt a natural progression for me to pursue as a career by applying the skills I have to develop my own business in launching my own range.

My aesthetic is soft and feminine and this is reflected in the collection. Through combining my love of classic silhouettes from vintage fashion and modern, playful additions of bows and embellishments I aim to provide a lovely and fashionable range of styles for girls suitable for any special occasion.

Each dress is designed and handmade to order using a selection of beautiful and delicate fabrics that are carefully selected to ensure a high quality finish and can be tailored to suit your individual requirements.

Recently I have teamed up with my mum, Lynn by opening a lovely boutique in Childwall in Liverpool. My mum offers a bridal and ladies eveningwear alterations service and my collection of dresses are available to view here should you wish to pop in for a browse if you're local or make an appointment.

Please note - You are welcome to mix and match the variety of designs I have to create a piece that is completely unique to suit your style and occasion. If you would like any further information then please don't hesitate to get in touch and I'll do my best to help with any query you may have.

Frequently asked questions
How do I accurately measure my flowergirl?

Starting with her upper body take the tape measure under her arms and measure directly across the chest while making sure to keep the tape measure taut but take care not to pull too tight as it should sit comfortably. For the waist, measure directly across her stomach following the same method. To measure for the length please make a note from the top of the shoulder to the floor as a reference and provide the measurement of the length you would like from her waist down. I usually advise mid-calf to ankle length, but please specify the length you desire bearing in mind the possibility of any change in height before the occasion. Please note I prefer measurements to be taken in inches and if you are in any doubt please get in touch.

How long before an ocassion do I need to place an order? 

I usually advise placing an order at least 4-6 months before the date of your wedding or event to secure a dress. The turnaround after recieving an order is usually 6-8 weeks, but this all depends on my shecdule at the time.

Will you take my order even it is placed less than 12 weeks before the ocassion?​

I understand it can be a very hectic time before any wedding/event so yes, it is possible to accomodate for rush orders depending on my diary at the time. Simply contact me by telephone or email and I will do my best to help.

What if I would like a dress to be in a different colour? 

If you are wanting a dress to be in a different colour or fabric to what we have in stock that's no problem, please provide me with a swatch of your fabric and I will make every effort to match it up as close as possible. Please note an additional cost may be added for the difference, but this will depend on your individual requirements. 

Is it possible to make changes to a dress?

Yes, the collection of dresses are standard designs but as they are all made to measure they can be altered to your preference, however there may be an extra cost depending on your requirements.

Often a popular enquiry is regarding the fullness of a dress. The dresses pictured come complete with a netting underskirt to give the required fullness, if you wish to have an extra amount of fullness or any less please advise this on placing the order.

Do you offer an alterations service? 

Unfortunately if you have ordered a dress online alterations are the responsibilty of the purchaser as every effort is made to provide a garment as close as possible to the measurements provided with added ease of 1.5-2 inches on chest and waist measurements. However if you live within the area and prefer to book in for appointments with me, any alterations or adjusments that may be needed are addressed during the fittings to ensure the overall fit is correct for your child.  

Is it possible to cancel my order or return a dress? 

If you wish to cancel your order please notify me within 7 days of ordering a dress. As all of the dresses are individually hand crafted unfortunately I do not accept returns or exchanges unless a mistake has been made on our behalf. However I will do my best to help, so please contact me if you have any queries. 

How will my order be posted?

All of the items are sent via recorded delivery through the Royal Mail service. Once posted you will be issued with a tracking number whereby you can track the delivery of your dress.
