The store is now only a day away from launching so as a little teaser I thought it would be fun to show you one of the items for sale.
During NYFW I wore this dress, it is one of the products I am now going to be selling in my store.
It is made of a cotton denim, and based on a design of a fishermen’s smock.
My family have been wearing smocks for three generations and they are very much a part of our family style.
My smocks are all hand cut and made in Cornwall, England and all the fabric is hand sourced across the country by me. These means that each piece has had a lot of love go into its creation and each is very unique.
I altered the design for the dress to give it a more feminine and modern feel.  The neck is wider, the sleeves are shorter and the body and pockets are longer.
The dress is so comfortable to wear and really does hide a multitude of sins (which is why I love it!).
The dress comes in two sizes, the S/M size cuts above the knee and is slightly more fitted, while the M/L size covers the knees and is wider cut.
I was so delighted that during NYFW it was featured on Vogue Japan, Vogue Italia, Style Italia, New York Magazine’s The Cut, Grazia Italia and Elle USA.
I really hope you will like my Smock Dress and that you will have a look at it in my store tomorrow when it launches.  Wish me luck!
