We are here to provide garments for the eclectic, the unconventional, the colourful; those daring to make a statement.

We are here for you to express yourself through textiles.

The reason I started this little clothing line up is because I could never find anything I liked. I felt like Goldilocks and the Three Bears; nothing was ever quite right on me. It was always either too short, too tight, too common, too tacky, too plain! So i decided it would save a lot of disappointment if I just made my own. Individuality is key. Hopefully people having similar difficulty will find my site and be able to express themselves again through their clothes, feel confident, and liberated from the fear of going out and seeing countless others wearing "your dress!"

The name is one very close to me, and people who know me may roll their eyes but it started when I got a little Parsons Jack Russell puppy called Magnum (P.I, that is, not the ice cream). The problem is that nobody has told him he's only a little dog. We've decided to embrace his mad energy, leaping and bounding and let him be our "little greyhound", attempting to keep up with all the rescued ex-racers we meet at the beach. Our family adores the little guy and I have to let him be part of the shop as he keeps me company while working by sleeping under the desk.

Being the only person in this thing it takes a while to get items on the site but I'm hopeful that it will keep growing.

Thank you for taking the time to view my little shop.

- I cannot refund an item because it does not fit: I require measurements with custom orders, to ensure this does not happen.

-Before purchasing an item please double check how long it will take to make and delivery time.
-If you have any problems regarding your order please contact me as soon as possible so we can work something out.
-I cannot refund custom orders that have been made if you change your mind- in that respect, the sale is final.
-If a refund is issued via credit card it can take up to 30 days to appear in your bank. I can send you confirmation of the refund, too.
-I inform customers about any faults in my vintage items. Most vintage clothes need dry cleaning, so i include that in the description. I include photos of any damage i can find, and include measurements of clothing.

-FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS PLEASE NOTE: the estimated delivery time for overseas parcels is 5-7 working days however, it can take up to two months extra to arrive at your door if it has been held at customs. This is out of my control, and you can never tell which parcel is going to get held at the customs office; usually it is due to a large amount of goods being imported. Only a very small percentage of my customers have had to wait a little while extra for their orders. If you are thinking of purchasing a garment for an important occasion, be sure to order it well in advance.
The Little Greyhound is not liable for any custom fees you may incur.
Additional policies and FAQs
IMPORTANT SIZING INFO: At The Little Greyhound the skirts are made from two panels of fabric sewn together. For waist measurements over 35" I recommend you get in contact if you wish to pay a little extra for an extra panel to be added if you are after a really full gathered skirt or dress. It is not absolutely necessary but please take notice of the recommendation before placing an order.
-WEDDING TIES/LARGE ORDERS: The usual waiting time is 2-3 weeks.
-WOMENS CUSTOM ORDERS: Regarding skirts, blouses and dresses the rule is three weeks until dispatch. Message me for any further details.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

For a dress I will need your bust, waist, and skirt length measurements. Metric or imperial will do. I prefer to make clothes base purely on your own measurements, as "standard clothing sizes" vary greatly. Including an estimated size (example: I usually fit a 12/14 UK) can help initially when making up your bespoke listing, so it won't hurt to include.

Care instructions

Ties: Never put ties in the washing machine. Always spot clean or take to the dry cleaners. Liberty ties will need ironing from time to time. Make sure to avoid the label and loop.

Custom Made Clothing: It is best to dry clean or spot clean. It is not that the clothes are too delicate, but fabric varies and I cannot be held responsible if clothes are shrunk. All fabric is brand new. All cotton may be ironed, avoiding the label.

Vintage: You may want to give these a dry clean before wearing. I charge reasonable prices for vintage items due to this fact.

Custom and personalised orders

How long will my item take?

It usually includes in the item description the estimated delivery time. For ties: generally a one week wait. Custom Clothing: up to two weeks. Wedding Ties: two to three weeks, depending on fabric and quantity.

I aim to dispatch all items the working day after they are completed.

If you are in urgent need of a custom order it really depends on what you want but I may be able to narrow down the estimate time for you. All you have to do is ask.

Wholesale availability

The best thing to do is contact me via an Etsy message. I will do my best to reply as promptly as possible.
