Today we introduce Bobtail’s Boutique, joining us for the first time on May 24th for bank holiday fun at Brighton Open Market. Find out more about their creations…
Please introduce yourself and your brand….
Hello I am Helen and I am the sewer behind Bobtail’s Boutique my lovely Mum is the knitter, Bobtail’s Boutique is a handmade baby and children’s clothing collection.
Bobtail’s was created in 2014 I have enjoyed attending lots of markets and networking sessions! Bobtail’s has released a Spring/Summer collection for 2015. I am currently busy creating an Autumn /Winter collection for a late September release.
How would you describe your style and your creations?
The Bobtail’s collection has a mix of traditional styles, with a mix of modern styles including reversible dungarees and dresses perfect for those messy moments when you are out and about, through to the classic Peter Pan collared dress which is proving popular this Summer.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
I love seeing the pieces coming together, whilst I can imagine them in my head I am always surprised with how each piece looks when finished!!
I also enjoy buying the fabric I attend lots of big fabric markets but also support a lot of UK small business that sell fabric, ribbons and buttons and of course wool! I feel it is important for small businesses to support one another!
What can we expect to find on your stall at The Fairy Tale Fair Brighton this May? And are you looking forward to taking part?
I am very excited to be attending the Fairy Tale Fair, there will be lots of hand knits from Grandma Bobtail and a variety of sewn clothing including some one off pieces especially for the Fairy Tale Fair, as always attendee’s can customise their choice of outfit by ordering through the website selecting their fabric choices at checkout and collect post free at the fair by quoting ‘FAIRY’ at checkout.
Do you have any plans or ambitions for the future?
The Bobtail’s Boutique Facebook page is becoming quite popular and growing in numbers I will be continuing to add new items their first and releasing new ranges. There will always be one off pieces available through the website and Etsy stores. At markets I carry the full range. I hope to add some new pieces slightly away from clothing later this year they are currently going through testing!
Do you have a motto or inspirational quote?
Unique clothes for your unique child!
