Goodbye Polly!

If you are subscribed to our mailing list you may have already heard - Polka Dot Polly is closing down

We have had a good run but we are both ready to move onto new pastures so we will be closing Polka Dot Polly down at the end of this year.

The last date to place orders (and the last day before this website is no longer online) is Sunday 5th November 2017, with a dispatch date of 31st December. 

Don't panic! Current orders are not affected in any way. This is a personal decision and we have announced it now only to give all of our customers time to plan for their final orders. 

Fabrics going out of stock...for good  

Since we first made the announcement 2 months ago we have had a huge influx of orders. 

We have been stock taking over the last few days and you may notice that our fabric supplies are dwindling

Since we are closing down we won't be ordering any new fabric in so we expect to see more and more fabrics go out of stock for good over the coming days. 

At this rate, we expect to have to close our 'design your own' and 'replica' services within the next month. 

When we made our initial announcement we had a barrage of lovely emails and we have been made aware of many customers' intentions to save for their last ever Polka Dot Polly purchase.

We don't want you to miss out on your dream dress(es) because our fabric stock has depleted before you anticipated so we would like to offer you all 35% off everything that's left.
Just use discount code LASTHURRAH

We still have a handful of fabrics down to £1 in our clearance section and items made in those fabrics will not be eligible for the 35% off.
Orders taking advantage of both offers will be cancelled and refunded. 

So, what now?  

We are still planning to stay open for business until November but because we won't have fabrics in stock to take 'design your own' or 'replica' items, what are we going to be offering?

The answer is, lucky dip items!

Yes, they're back. Or at least, they will be.

So many people loved our lucky dip option and were sad to see it go two summers ago so we decided to revive it for our last few months of business. 

If you're new to our lucky dip process, this is what it's all about:
We'll have different options to order (for example "Lucky Dip Satin Dress", "Lucky Dip Pop Culture Blouse" etc.), you tell us your measurements and one or two colours you don't like/want and that's it! We design your item, make it and send it off to you. The discount you get (as opposed to having ordered it the normal way) is significant because you don't know what your item will be! 

Because we get to decide what to make you, we can order just the amount of our chosen fabric needed to make your item so there's no need for us to keep stock in but you still get gorgeous (and now completely limited edition) Polka Dot Polly blouses, skirts and dresses for a fraction of their normal value.  

 

Of course you will still be able to order items to be made in your own fabric HERE right up until we close.
