Everything old is new again with vintage dresses

Little girls and sweet dresses go hand in hand. Now the vintage vibe that’s back in vogue has mums and grandmas digging out their old frocks for the younger generation. If,  like me, you don’t have anything hidden away from thirty years ago here’s where to start afresh!

Sailor Rose is all for embracing vintage style. Here you will find gorgeous little girls’ dresses made from classic Liberty of London fabrics. Sailor Rose leave the fuss to the fabrics, using busy florals, paisley and graphic prints typical of years gone by but keeping the design and cut of the dresses simple so they’re perfect for play.

My favourite is the Pillowcase dress in blue paisley. I love Sailor Rose’s suggestion to wear it as a top with jeans or shorts, layered for cooler weather or by itself for the warmer months, once it’s outgrown as a dress. Talk about great mileage out of a single item!

The names of the dresses are just as cute as the articles themselves, with The Dustbowl Dress, Baker Island Dress and the heavenly 1930s Fancy Dress with white collar and cuffs.

Dresses are from US$125 and headbands US$25 at Sailor Rose who will ship to Australia.
