Hand Painted Bubble Dress

This dress design is a customer favourite. Made unique with this beautiful hand painted fabric.

Baby Romper

Custom denim and cotton baby romper size 6 months. Features lace appliqué and velvet ribbon embellishment.

Alternative Facts Jacket

This design is a version of the coco jacket. It features ruffled lining inspired by the a/w2017 alexander macqueen collection.

The back of the completed jacket features a hand painted sacred heart and is surrounded by hand attached lace.

The jacket front also features a large lace motif. The jacket fabric and lace is upcycled from a 1971 vintage wedding dress.

Like the coco jacket the sleeves featured here are two pieces.

see the fun shine and splatter detail of the sacred heart painting. Created using gem paints.

Paired with the pinafore

Like all cooler season looks, layers are the best. The alternative facts jacket is paired with an upcycled pinafore. The pinafore is made with upcycled Brook's brothers shirts.

This pinafore is closed with ribbons on the side. It also features a lovely pintuck bodice.

The sides of the pinafore are open . This is lovely paired with another dress or simply with a shirt and jeans.
