Custom Made

In addition to the handmade collections I design and make for Poppet I also create one-off pieces for my lovely customers in need of something specific.
This dress was made for Alice.....she came into the shop, fabric in hand and said "I would like a 50's inspired sleeveless dress that is both fun and elegant...and can work for both day and night" (I am paraphrasing but it did go something like that!)
So a few measurements and sketches later we came up with the perfect design and I was left to do the making.....and this is how it turned out

The fabric is a slightly stretchy cotton with small white spots. It has a fully lined bodice and gathered skirt. I think it came out perfect and I'm a little sad to see it go to its new home (I might just have to make myself a similar one!)

If you have something specific that you want made....come visit me at Poppet or send me an email and we'll see what we can do....Yay

So awesome! It's fantastic you offer that service as I don't think there are that many around these parts that do. It's such a cute dress too!
