Inspired by the classic sailor bib, an homage to the ancient port of Rye, the home town of Merchant and Mills, this lovely dress has dropped shoulders and casual rolled cuffs and an internal popper at the front V insert. Classic dress for a little girl.
Merchant and Mills was set up in 2010 in Rye, by Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field, with the intention of bringing style and purpose to the overlooked world of sewing.Carolyn and Roderick now travel the world in search of unique and beautiful fabrics, finding aesthetic and practical inspiration along the way. New patterns and products emerge, never rushed to market, but slowly developed to be exemplary, desirable and pragmatic. Their ethos is to respect the roots of sewing, from trade to home dressmaking, to enable and inspire more people to find the satisfaction of simply making.
