Welcome to the store


Hello and welcome to my website.

I have worked in the clothing industry all my adult life – design, manufacture, wholesale and retail. In recent years my involvement has been retail, selling at festivals, county shows and in pop-up shops. This is my first foray into online. The clothes I am showing are styles that reflect my tastes. I buy from UK suppliers, who import mainly from Italy. I am also introducing the Tess range, which is designed and made by myself.

I only ever buy two or three of any one item, so that I can keep the stock looking fresh with new styles coming in regularly. Most items are labeled as One Size, this doesn’t mean that one size will fit everyone, but that the clothes are cut in such a way or that they are made in stretch fabrics so that they can fit a range of sizes. The models are my daughter, who would normally wear a size 6. Her measurements are – Height 162cm/5ft4″ Bust – 79cm/31″ Waist – 63.5cm/25″ Hips – 84cm/33″, and myself – size 8-10, similar height to Amy and a bit bigger all round. Hopefully by comparing your measurements with ours you can gauge how an item will fit you. If any extra information is required, for example what the flat measurement of a particular item is, please message me and I will respond asap.


For customers who are local, I offer an alteration service, not just for Tess Clothing items, I’m happy to consider any clothing repairs or alterations.


If you need to return an item, this should to be within 14 days of purchase. If the item was free local delivery, it would be great if you could drop it back to me either at home or in the shop, and I will issue a refund. If the item was posted, I’m afraid you will need to cover the cost of return postage.
