Liberty Rose Dress made by Melissa on Mull.jpg

SPRING / SUMMER 2022 - 2023

Stitched to last heart logo .png

Designed with timeless silhouettes of by gone eras and dancing in mind, a full circle dress or skirt is a lovely addition to a sustainable summer wardrobe, ideal for vintage themed events or 50s style weddings. Previous collection of ultra feminine, full circle skirts & dresses have flattering sweetheart necklines, nipped in waists, midi lengths & pockets. Each garment is ethically made in my cosy home studio in the UK. Each garment is made to order ensuring a wonderful fit for all, as reflected in customer reviews.

MADE TO MEASURE

The popular made to measure service is still complementary and only requires 3 simple measurements - ensuring a flattering, feel good  fit for all.

Melissa believes in the power of drafting her own patterns and throwing aways the shaming ‘standard’ size guides. Making each garment upon receipt of your order equates to less waste, limited editions also ensure each piece is more unique, ideal for every day glamour or extra special occasions!

ORGANIC COTTON & PRINTS BY LIBERTY LONDON 

Over the last 13 years, it's been brilliant to see more organic & sustainable materials become available. This full circle collection contains no synthetic, toxic 'poly' plastic fibres, only natural pure cotton that is compostable / ocean safe. Organic pure cotton thread is used in the sewing machines, gift wrapping & packaging is also zero plastic. Browse more eco-conscious material here.

 ETHICALLY STITCHED TO LAST IN SCOTLAND

Like so many of our lovely customers and other eco-conscious creatives, we are aware of the harrowing impact fast and fleeting fashion trends have on our planet and peoples lives. So this collection prioritises our planet, quality over quantity, and the classic, vintage inspired, timeless silhouettes that never go out of style.

Collection update:

Please note, the order book for these collections is officially closed. Only limited quantities of each collection were made, showcased by lovely customers in the gallery.

 

Having said this, please don’t hesitate to say hello if you have your heart set on a garment displayed here or would like to a quote to commission a similar dress in a fabric shown in the fabric library. Also be sure to join the mailing list, so I can let you know when the next limited edition collection is available to pre-order. In the newsletter, I also share articles that highlight other artisan designers and attempt to unpick the complexities of designing and shopping for a sustainable capsule wardrobe that’s ‘Stitched to last’.
