Part 1: Polka dots and white dresses...
How long is January?! (I know it’s only 31 days but man it feels longer!)
It’s definitely that time of year when I’m dreaming of warmer weather and if you are anything like me, already planning my summer wardrobe!
I’ve been checking out the trends for Spring/ Summer to give me a bit of inspiration for my makes this year, they include; 90’s minimal, summer leather (?!) suits, shorts, jungle prints, the seventies, waistcoats and neon. Two of my favourite trends are polka dots and white dresses!
In this weeks trend post I’m going to show you some of the trends, fabrics and patterns you could use to get the look yourself…
The ex-fashion student in me loves looking at the extravagant designs from the catwalk, but, they are not always the most wearable! But I think what we can take from these images is that volume is king and a mixture of large and small polka dots gives a really impactful look!
We have some lovely polka dots in stock at the moment…
Not sure about a whole polka dot look but want to give a nod to the trend or just add a flash of pattern to your latest make? Take a look at our fabulous range of trimmings!

This next trend is going to be huge this summer…just remember not to have red wine or spag bol and you’ll be fine! Many a white shirt I have ruined this way!!
White dresses look fab with tan and black leather accessories and are a great way of keeping cool in the hot summer sun…
