It's truly magical creating beautiful bespoke children's clothing, working hand in hand with a bride and groom where the children are very special to them.

From an early age, I’ve loved sketching, stitching and creating children’s clothing, which can be really fiddly work - it’s all in the detail! 

I think every child should know what it’s like to wear an outfit that’s been sewn especially for them.  I work hand in hand with the happy couple from my little studio in Winchester, surrounded with the most glorious British lace, piping, buttons, threads and beautiful fabrics including the Queen of Fabrics – silk! Each piece of clothing is soft and allows movement – whilst also being perfect for your special occasion.

I originally trained as a Primary Teacher working with very young adorable children, and I know from first-hand experience the enormous excitement and miles of smiles when they are given something so very special that is just for them! 

It’s also a privilege and honour listening to the bride and groom’s ideas, working together from design to fabric selection, sparkles and embellishments and I’d love to hear all about your special occasion and ideas you may have.

After all, this very special piece of clothing will carry the memories of special times with the people who matter most and can be treasured for future generations.

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for Evie’s gorgeous dress. The finish was stunning. We loved it & most importantly she loved it! We let her open the package when it arrived, she said she looked like a princess. I also want to say thank you again for your guidance as you were spot on in going for a darker colour to suit her colouring - she looks great in the photos."



"Many thanks Dawn for creating such a wonderful outfit.  The finish was stunning. I know our brief was not traditional, getting married after having our daughter and me not wearing white - but it was important that our little girl was centre stage with the two of us - you helped us achieve that!"      



"Thank you Dawn for making our little one (and us!) feel extra special on our special day.  The gorgeous little dress you created fitted perfectly and it was wonderful working with you to be able to choose the fabric and trimmings to complement our outfits, it really made the day a family occasion!"
