First market day

Last Sunday was our first ever Boutique Market day and what a wonderful time we had!  Although a shower or two were predicted, the sun shone and the weather was gorgeous.  Thank you to everyone who visited Nicobelle Design - I met some lovely new customers and fellow stallholders but unfortunately was too busy to make any of my own purchases this time (a big plus in hubby's eyes!!).  With a P&O ship in dock, Portside was abuzz with tourists and visitors all morning and the Markets had a really happy vibe as people browsed the beautiful, and very tempting, wares on display.  Here are a few pictures of our stall before opening time:

Our pom poms seemed to attract the crowds - everybody wanted to buy one!

Winter dresses and tops

Winter skirts

Our knot dresses, which proved to be a big hit

I am already looking forward to the next Boutique Market day - if the first was any indication, we are in for a fun-filled year!!  Sewing has already commenced and I'll provide some sneak peeks of our latest stock soon.

More winter designs

Two more dresses have been added to our winter line.  The Gemma Tunic in Raspberry:

This dress features ruffles at the base, topped with golden ric rac, butterfly sleeves and a feature ruffle from the neckline to add a bit of zing, and is designed to be layered with leggings, long-sleeved Ts or jeans.  The two fabrics are simply gorgeous together and would match a multitude of basics in her wardrobe.  It's a style that would look sweet all year round, not just in the cooler seasons.

The second item is our Sasha Swing Dress in Sunflower:

What a happy dress!  Again, this has been designed for winter layering - how sweet would it look with a turquoise or brown T and leggings?  As the straps are adjustable, this dress will grow with your girl - in a couple of years, it will be one of her most comfy tops!  Last year I made a Swing dress for my 8 year old daughter and her 13 year old sister occasionally borrows it to wear as a top - all you need to do is re-tie the straps and it will continue to fit for years!

Happy browsing!

Our first winter collection is live!

Since my last post, I have been as busy as a bee making all of Nicobelle Design's winter stock and am SO excited to start sharing it with you!  It has been a great journey - there is nothing I love more than designing a piece of clothing, firstly in my mind, then on paper, and seeing it come to life in fabric and colour.  Often along this journey there will be alterations to be made until the perfect piece arrives, but the whole design process is very exciting and engaging!

In our very first winter collection, there are dresses, tops and skirts, all designed to be worn with your daughter's favourite wardrobe basics.  Team our skirts or dresses with a long sleeved T, leggings and winter boots and she will be set to discover new horizons! Our styles can easily be dressed up for a fancy day out, and are so comfortable, she will think they are also perfect for a quiet day at home with friends.

Our tops have 3/4 sleeves and look simply divine with a pair of jeans and boots; they are roomy enough to pop a long sleeved T underneath as well.  

As with all our winter clothes, the skirts have been made with the deeper and richer colours of the season in mind, so that when she selects her favourite hot pink or dark red long sleeved T from the wardrobe, it will match a multitude of our styles. 

I hope you enjoy browsing our latest range.  There are more styles being added to the website almost daily, so please check back to see more.  If you have any queries, just send me an email from the link on the right.

I'll be back soon with some more news!
