About Us

The Polka Dot Polly Team 

Hello there...

We are Polka Dot Polly - a British mother & daughter team working from our home-based studio in the UK to bring you authentic vintage style garments.

True vintage dresses were often hand-made to measure due to the highly fitted & tailored styles of the times so it only seems natural that we should offer the same service for the modern-day woman.

We have always made dresses for ourselves, family and friends and think that everyone should have the opportunity to get exactly what they want in the knowledge that it will fit like a glove.

Where other reproduction brands primarily use stretch fabrics and looser fitting styles (or are otherwise unable to cater to a multitude of shapes and sizes), we offer the chance to choose your own design and fabric and get a dress made specifically for you, often for a very similar price. 

Apart from the quirky nature of some of our prints we like to think that our  garments would not be out of place in everyday 50s life. We try to avoid the characature and focus on the truly authentic. In fact, many of our styles are directly influenced by actual vintage dresses. 

We take pride in our work and aim to offer the best service, quality and craft(wo)manship possible & hope that you will be pleasantly surprised with what just two pairs of hands can do :)
