Reviewing The Seamstress of Bloomsbury – Green Mayflower Print

This blog post features gifted items from The Seamstress of Bloomsbury. All opinions are my own.

Hello everyone,

How the dickens are we?

Despite being some days into spring I am now finally feeling spring like!

Yes, Ive actually felt pretty rotten these last few weeks after finding myself with an Iron and Vitamin D deficiency. The Iron deficiency really sprung out of no where but the Vitamin D wasn’t too much of a surprise. Covid-19 has very much left me working from home and my usual trips out to visit people have been largely cut down.

I am feeling much much better now, but I guess its a reminder that in these times we have to take extra good care of ourselves and in ways that we wouldn’t necessarily think of. I had been gardening, but had muscled through most of that which left me spending most of my time in doors. Since, and to tackle these things I’ve decided to give Lola an extra midday walk (she doesn’t mind!) and even turned my desk around to face the window to see if it allows me to get an extra top up!

Not only has the sun boosted my mood but some weeks ago I received an email from the wonderful Seamstress of Bloomsbury to let me know they had just dropped their new Green Mayflower print which was available on a range of items from skirts to dresses. Kindly they offered to send me some items and I thought I would showcase them to all of you!

My heart!

It is no over exaggeration that I LOVE The Seamstress of Bloomsbury and I dont even think its something I have to highlight (and mainly as the majority of my wardrobe is made up of their pieces!)

When I think of how I was brought up and the style of dress I admired it was very much tied to the more 1940s style. I love little tea dresses, a-line skirts and collared blouses. I remember my grandma had a beautiful navy blue dress with small daisies on it. Not only did I used to try it on myself, but always encouraged her to wear it.

I had always struggled finding more 1940s style clothes and capturing that styled that I admired growing up or that was until I found The Seamstress of bloomsbury.

The Seamstress of Bloomsbury allows me to capture that style I love, but also adding a slightly modern twist with their patterns and colour schemes featuring anything from dogs to floral prints.(Dogs on dresses? I know!) The quality is also always second to none and that is something I always admired in the clothing my grandma shared with me as things had either been handmade or purchased from other dress makers. There is an aspect of that in The Seamstress of Bloomsbury pieces and not only are the items beautiful, but I think there is something so special in knowing that so much love, care and attention has been put into each time.

I always get excited when they release new items and prints and this time its no different.

Introducing the Green Mayflower print!

The Seamstress of Bloomsbury have recently released their new Green Mayflower print which features pink, white and green flowers displayed on a dark green backdrop and let me tell you, its BEAUTIFUL.

Ive very much realised over the last few years that my colours are navy, pink and green. I think it takes some time to find those colours you love and that compliment your skin tone and obviously those things change too. However, I have recently found that these are a firm favourite. Both navy and green also seem to be a running theme with 1940s style pieces too which only furthers my love for the colours.

The Seamstress of Bloomsburys Green Mayflower print is not only a stunning shade of green but just oozes those spring time feels. Though saying that, something I love about these style prints is despite their spring/summertime vibes they can still be paired with knitted cardigans and stockings during the cooler months.

Again something I appreciate with The Seamstress of Bloomsbury and why they occupy 90% of my wardrobe is the quality. Time and time again the quality of all their pieces is just spot on and I have had pieces from them for years. Their items are made up of Rayon Crepe which obviously takes a little more care than your average jeans and t-shirt, but I think the wash and care process for them is also part of the charm.

I also love the details their items feature from keyhole backs in the Dolores Dress to their material covered buttons on the Eva Dress.
