Powell Craft Girls Cotton Dresses – Styles for Summer
Powell Craft make beautiful handmade girls dresses in many styles for all seasons of the year but their cotton summer dresses are just perfect for the warm weather if you want your little girl to look gorgeous and stay cool.
Powell Craft use only the finest cotton and materials, and their designs are mostly inspired by traditional styles, from a time when little girls looked pretty and feminine. Some of their designs have quite a vintage feel to them, through their use of floral and other motifs dating back to the 1950s.
Some of the Powell Craft designs are based on fashions dating even further back, as far back as the late 19th and early 20th century. These designs have a distinctive Victoriana feel about them, through their use of white cotton, lace and ruffles.
While Powell Craft girls’ dresses have a traditional quality to them many still encompass contemporary shapes, motifs and designs so your little girls won’t be left behind in the fashion stakes. Many use bright colours and funky designs so there is something for all tastes, but all the dresses are made using the same high quality materials and standards of craftsmanship.
Most of the dresses in the Powell Craft nursery range have girls’ names, such as Hattie and Martha. Most of them come in sizes 1-2 years, 2-3 years, 4-5 years, 6-7years and 8-9 years.
Martha is a new design by Powell Craft, it is a white cotton dress with pastel pink polka dots, a pink trim with tiny white polka dots and a bow on the side. It is a very pretty dress combining traditional and contemporary elements.
Some of the more traditional Victoriana-inspired dresses include the Hattie, a white cotton dress with cap sleeves, lace trim edges, and blue, pink and red floral embroidery around the square neck line. And the Buttercup, a white cotton sleeveless dress with buttoned front and white embroidery.
Some of the vintage-looking designs include two dresses in the Blue and Red Rose range of Powell Craft products, the Eve and the Matilda. Both dresses are made from the same pale blue cotton with a red rose motif on them but they are different styles. The Eve has a square neckline with puff sleeves and a tie at the back, while the Matilda has a red and white polka dot trim around the collar, hem, sleeves and bust line.
Some of the contemporary-feeling designs include the Fern, a lime green cotton dress with white polka dots and a fabric flower on the breast. The same design dress also comes in white and blue polka dots, red and white polka dots, and the vintage Dolly motif.
There are many other delightful dresses in the Powell Craft nursery girls range, the ones mentioned here are just a selection, but all of them are made with care and attention to detail to ensure your little ones look as pretty as a picture this summer.
