Made in New Zealand by Sophie Mutu

“Absolutely love this dress!
 
Such a beautiful classic style, comfy fit and best of all my daughter loves it!
 
Her favourite part is of course the pockets to keep her little treasures in!
 
Thank you for such a beautiful dress that will be a staple in my little girls wardrobe”

NEW PATTERN spotlight

The Kea Top is a classic top with timeless design.
 

The Kea Top takes its inspiration from the endangered alpine parrot, native to New Zealand. Kea are cheeky, clever, and they adapt to the harsh four seasons that the mountains give them each year.

We know this evergreen pattern will be a wardrobe favourite for your little one as it travels and adapts with her throughout the seasons.
