The Octopus Garden Vintage Handmade Dress and Beret in Light My Fire
Welcome to our Handmade Collection!!
These are the cutest zip up mini dress and beret combos, inspired by Mary Quant and our desire not to waste a single scrap of gorgeous vintage fabric! The perfect outfit for groovy girls, taking you through from the warmest days to the chilliest autumn/winter. So adorable layered with your favourite shirt or roll neck, or just with some 60s boots in the spring/summer! Featuring an O ring zip, a comfy classic mod shape, and even comes with a matching handmade beret!!!
Each piece is made in England by Caitlin or our seamstress Helen, who has over 30 years experience in historical sewing!
This half and half dress specifically is made from the two groovy fabrics in the first image, one half is that fiery swirl print and the other half is a mega flower power print in all the browns and oranges!
