Whilst exhibiting at the trade show Top Drawer in London for the first time a couple of weeks ago, I debuted my new Romper suit collection.
I loved rompers when both the girls were little. They're so easy to pull on and off, and they layer up or down really well.
I'm also completely obsessed with piping on clothing at the moment. When I first started making piping and using it on my cushions I knew that I wanted to use it in my childrens clothing, but it's taken me a while to come up with just the right design for it.
I love the way the piping adds an extra layer to such a simple design. The accent of bright colour adds a fun element to the romper, especially when teamed with almost utilitarian ginghams and linens.
And I love the fact that this is such an easy design to wear. When Bella was a baby I chose lots of beautifully designed clothes for her. But time and again I found myself putting her in the same easy to put on and easy to wear clothes and found that I didn't like anything too fitted or anything that would hinder her rolling about. Which is why I stick to simple designs that have plenty of space for comfort and growth and try to offset the simplicity by introducing more sophisticated pops of colour and detail.
These are available in sizes that range from 6 months to 3 years and are in the shop now.
