So exciting! Sarsparilly made this super cute swing dress with my Mysterious Mermaid Print!
My fabric design was inspired by vintage mermaid decals of the 1940's and 50's by Meyercord Decals. I am also very inspired by the ceramic mermaid figurines made long ago by Lefton.
"One of our new dresses from the collaboration with Irregular Choice is this suuuuper cute dress featuring a print by Miss Fluff 😍Its called our Mermaid It dress and it shows mermaids riding seahorses in Miss Fluff's awesome retro style. Available made to order on the website ."
It is a beautiful 50's reproduction swing dress with full skirt that can be worn with or without a petticoat (shown here with a petticoat, petticoat is not included). The front shoulders have a bow detail and the gathered skirt has hidden pockets on both sides for lipstick, keys etc.
Sarsparilly is known for its lovingly crafted, vintage inspired clothing with references of pop culture, kitsch, and colour. Each garment is handmade in Australia with beautiful quality fabrics and put a smile on the face of all who wear them.
Much of the fabric used is laser printed using eco friendly dyes for minimum wastage.
They love supporting up and coming designers so many of their prints are by independent artists, like me!
The Sarsparilly brand was created by designer, Maria Murphy.
It was her dream to start her own fashion line since she was 11 years old!
Some of her inspirations are blue skies, green grass, flamingos, kewpie dolls, carousels and candy (and anything else that makes you smile). Maria lives with her husband and two little boys in beautiful coastal Newcastle, Australia.
I hope you will enjoy her fashion creations as much as I do!
