Daisy Top

While putting the Spring collection I found myself looking back at previous clothes I had made. There is a long sleeve top I bring back every spring in a variety of patterns and prints. I designed the styled with the 1970s in mind , which I am renaming as the Daisy top as its one of my favourites and will probably always feature in Spring!

This yellow polka dot version was the first 1970s style I made! All the gorgeous photos above are credit to Christine Burns.

The AW16 version of the top was a softer yellow floral version, worn her with our mustard cord dress. Photo credit AMC Photography Cork




I also made a version of the top with a purple floral mixed with our own leaf design in organic cotton, which was used as the purple on the bodice and in the blue collar.

The Daisy top was to reappear in 2017, more posts to follow!

Many thanks to both Ann-Marie Collins and Christine Burns for the amazing photography and to all the models!

Lollipops and Daydreams Christmas Dress - The Nutcracker

Hello,

I'm a big fan of Nutcracker decorations at Christmas time. They are traditional, colourful and ever since watching "Barbie and the Nutcracker" movie with my daughter when she was little, we've included a few nutcrackers in our decorations at home here. The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy music has a permanent place in my memory!

When I spotted this beautiful Nutcracker print I had to include it in our Christmas collection for 2018.

Happy Nutcracker Season
