My friend, the Vintage Bride, is a big lover of Horrockses Fashions and I'm with her on this. Their prints, fabrics and dresses are divine. Long since closed down, the fashion label had a lovely retrospective exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum last year, and I was pleased to notice that the brand might be making a come back with this revival website and shop. Check out their blog for a free downloadable pattern of this original Horrockses sun dress.
Vintage Bride celebrated a birthday last week, I crafted a Horrockses inspired gift for her. The V&A Shop is currently selling a selection of revival Horrockses fashions and fabrics (you can buy online) - I bought two dainty cotton hankies and used them as decoration for mini cushions.
