I started making dresses for my own children in 1985. I enjoy needlework and decided to take up smocking, which although very time consuming I found great satisfaction in the end result. Wherever I went I was asked where I had brought my children`s dresses..
Although asked many times, I did not start making dresses for friends and relatives until 2003. I then started my internet site bubbs.co.uk in 2005. The website has been very succesful and I have had orders from America and Australia where hand smocking on Flower Girl dresses is very popular.
All of my dresses are designed and made to order, customers can choose their own colours for the material and smocking, they can also choose whether or not to have collars, sleeves, belts etc. making the dresses very popular for weddings and special occasions. I also do matching knickers and hair bows if requested. The dresses can be embellished with crystals, beads and ribbons or just hand smocking depending on the customer`s choice..
Because I work alone I am only able to complete a certain amount of dresses each year, so please contact me by email or phone before you place an order as I have a waiting list.
