Dickybird Dresses is created and owned by a lovely lady named Kristen Cutlack, Kristen has studied fashion design, pattern making and illustration. In 2011 the Dickybird label was started, Kristen custom designs dresses, skirts and tops. All her designs are specifically made to suit the piece of fabric on hand, so just in every case her dresses etc are a one off design.
Her fabrics are often vintage and up-cycled from other pieces so her customers may expect some slight variations is colour in the made up dresses, skirts etc.
She also has an exceptional skill in fitting a garment to a customers measurements, which I definitely found in the dress she custom made for me!
Kristen sells her dresses at her own home in Queensland, Australia, at several markets and on her facebook https://www.facebook.com/DickybirdDresses/ and instagram pages @mydickybird
I was able to choose the style of dress I wanted, by messaging Kristen from Dickybird Dresses through her facebook page, and she sent me a photo of the fabric she currently had in stock that I could use for my dress. I do adore the pink floral print, the green leaves on the cream background.
I sent through my measurements, with the final result, ended up fitting like a dream!
I also love the length, the front pockets, the white zigzag ending around the pockets and neckline and the square neckline itself. This dress is made out of a light cotton and has a back zip.
I highly recommend on ordering yourself a "beautiful creation" from Dickybird Dresses!
