Hello, Thank you for visiting my website.

Here at Violet and Bean, I handmake bespoke dresses and outfits for ages two - twelve years old, for Weddings, Parties, Holy Communion and all Special Occasions.

When I got married, I searched high and low for something a little different and unique for my flower girls and pageboy outfits. I then started to look at sewing patterns and found the most amazing selection of fabrics available. I bought some beautiful royal blue floral patterned cotton, ivory plain cotton and tulle net fabrics; and created some really sweet flower girl dresses that suited our wedding theme and venue perfectly. I had many lovely comments and realised that I absolutely loved sewing!

I  offer you the opportunity to create outfits that are totally unique to your special occasion. Something that compliments your venue, theme and colour theme.

I am able to source many different fabrics, offering you something beautiful to create the right look. Fabrics from Dupion silk to Duchess satin, and from plain cottons to patterned cottons. You can also add lace, ribbons, flowers and jewels and sash.

I look forward to hearing from you xx

*All of my dresses and waistcoats etc. are made to order, using the best quality fabrics available. Everything is fully lined.

*Samples available for each fabric

*My lead time at the moment is 3-6 weeks. This incudes fabric ordering and receiving, making, and shipping.

At the moment, UK only however I am open to shipping further.
Everything is posted using Royal Mail Special delivery. I email all of my customers their tracking numbers.

*Bespoke options for listed dresses: Any sash. Some people have their own fabric that matches their adult bridesmaids or would like a different one to advertised.

*Sizes: All of my dress sizes are made for age sizes. For example, Age 3, Age 4, Age 5 and so on. My patterns are pretty true to ages size clothing, so I go by that rather than focus on their measurement, however, I will ask for these. For example, for an age 3, I would make and Age 3 but for an Age 3-4 (heading more to an Age 4) I would make an Age 4.

I can adapt a pattern if required, for example, you may have a slim and tall child so I would make their age size for the bodice and dress but adapt the length of the skirt to their height.

*Safety! All of my sashes comply with the safety regulations for children’s clothing.

*Washing: All of my handmade garments come with their own wash labels sewn in. I do recommend dry cleaning most, as there can be a 5% shrinkage when machine washing. No tumble drying and iron inside out and on a low setting. Do not iron any Tulle net fabrics. These dresses can be hung and steamed for any creases to fall out.
