Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to introduce you to the wonderfully amazing Silly Old Sea Dog. Silly Old Sea Dog items are passionately made in the UK – and range from a UK size 6 to 28. I had the fabulous chance to speak to Alison about her fabulous dresses!
I started my business 2 years ago with the dream to make clothing that is flattering, made in the British Isles and to be fun, colourful and provide something different, which attracts attention for all of the right reasons. Silly Old Sea Dog dresses were born to be worn at a wedding, they’re different and we only make a few of each one, so the chances that you’ll bump into a someone wearing the same one are very very slim!
Last year I had many requests to start making my dresses in larger sizes, so I decided to expand the range from sizes 6-16 up to a 24. I think that the great thing about 1950’s silhouettes is that they are great for all shapes and sizes of woman, the shapes are very feminine and flattering.
The dresses are ideal to wear as a bride for a quirky wedding, for wedding guests to stand out from the crowd. Or why not for your bridesmaids? I design all of the dresses myself and chose the fabrics, from my studio in Newquay, Cornwall – then they are made in a small factory near Manchester in the UK. Our garments can be shipped all around the world.
Silly Old Sea Dog not only produce a range or ready to wear items to buy from our website www.sillyoldseadog.com but we can also make one off pieces, our dresses are available to order in your own fabric choice / colour scheme for you or your bridesmaids for the big day.
We also stock a range of matching headbands and hair bows to compliment the dresses and fun and funky headbands which make ideal quirky facinators!
