PIPKIN CLOTHING | Bespoke Service | How it works

The first step is to get in touch with us for an initial discussion about your ideas and requirements. Whether you are looking for a formal or more relaxed style, we can advise on design choice and suitable fabrics, tailored to suit you.

FABRICS & COLOURS

Once we understand your preferences, we will source a selection of fabrics for you in the colours you are considering e.g. linens, cottons, velvets, silks and corduroy. If you would like to provide your own fabric, we would be delighted to make up our designs in it, dependent on confirmed suitability.

SIZING & FIT

 We have patterns for babies, boys and girls up to 10 years old. We will ask you for all the children’s measurements to ensure the correct size pattern is used and to make any design adjustments where necessary.

 

 

DRESSES

We offer a beautifully classic Bridesmaid or Flowergirl dress, perfect for both formal and more relaxed occasions. This is usually made in either a sweet Swiss Dot Cotton or Satin fabric although velvets and linens as well as floral prints are also available. The dress is best worn with a coloured sash (see below) to match your colour scheme.

You can then choose any combination of sleeve style and collar shape from our collection, and choose any length, which allows you to tailor the dress to your favourite look.

If you have an idea of a different sleeve length or neck style to those shown below, please let us know - we’d be very happy to discuss patterns with you.

 

SHIRTS & BODYSUITS

We offer a classic shirt in a white linen and cotton mix fabric. You can then choose the type of collar from our collection and tailor the shirt to your favourite look with piping or covered buttons. If you have an idea of a different sleeve length or neck style to those shown below, please let us know - we’d be very happy to discuss patterns with you.

If you have younger Flower Girls or Page Boys, we can also source bodysuits to create outfits for them.

 SHORTS, TROUSERS & BLOOMERS

Our Shorts, Trousers and Bloomers can be made in a fabric of your choice to coordinate with your colour scheme, and look beautiful in either linen, corduroy or velvet.

Our Award Winning Glade Shorts are finished with a mother or pearl button at each knee and are slightly tapered, generally being worn to just below the knee although look good anywhere between knee and mid calf.

The Haytor Shorts look particularly good in the summer and on older boys for a more relaxed style.

 

 SASHES & CUMMBERBUNDS

Our Sashes are the perfect way to add a touch of colour to the bridesmaid dresses, and we will make these in the fabric of your choice. They are long enough to tie at the back in a pretty bow, and we adjust the length depending on the size of dress ordered.

Our Cummerbunds are often chosen to coordinate with the colour of the bridesmaid sashes, and finish the boys’ outfits perfectly. They fasten with 2 mother of pearl buttons at the back.
