Handmade individually styled girls dresses and co-ordinates
My name is Jan and I am the owner of Tonia Rose Designs which was borne from a longstanding passion for dressmaking, the name Tonia Rose being inspired by a dearly loved late baby sister, who is always in our hearts and there can be no better tribute to her than little girls happily wearing the outfits I have created in her name. Naming my craft business in her honour ensures that her name continues to be a part of our everyday lives.
Sewing is a big part of my DNA with my maternal grandmother earning her living through her outstanding needlework skills and inspiring me from an early age when I became fascinated by her flair with fabric and it was at the age of 16, with the help of my lovely mum, that I taught myself to sew and embarked on a hobby that I have delighted in for several decades.
For many years I made clothes just for myself and my family but my outfits proved popular and this led to requests to make for others, including an evening dress hire company whom I supplied with a variety of ballgowns. I have made a vast range of womens outfits over the years from separates to bridal gowns but I am excited to now be concentrating on outfits for little girls which satisfies my creative side and provides me with immense pleasure.
I make reasonably priced individually styled handmade dresses and co-ordinates for girls aged between 1 and 8 years. Each style can be made to order in a range of sizes and fabrics (subject to availability) and is identified by a girls name. Each one is different to the next, having its own co-ordinating fabrics and trimmings. All fabrics are prewashed in a non-biological liquid and all styles are made to a high standard with love and attention to detail in a safe environment.
Although I live in the West Midlands I am not limited to this area and I am very happy to travel to craft fairs across the country to experience different crafters and audiences.
