My Sister Mabel’s Amazing Super Hero Dresses
29th November 2015
I came across My Sister Mabel on Instagram and was instantly captivated by the eye catching, fierce and fun dresses. The designs include everything Charlie and the Pirates love including Spiderman, Star Wars as well as football prints. We cannot wait to get our hands on a couple!
A mum called Tracy who lives in Devon designs the dresses. She has two girls, which like mine don’t fit the pretty pink stream. I asked her some questions to find out more about this exciting venture.
What is special about My Sister Mabel?
My clothing is all unique, up-cycled and handmade using pre-loved fabrics (I very rarely use new fabrics) which also means there will only be maximum of 6 dresses in any one fabric, although I do get some fabrics more than once. I aim to have new dresses every week.
What is your inspiration?
My two girls are my inspiration! Mabel is obsessed with dinosaurs and has been for sometime and Bella loves her Marvel Comic dresses. I’ve also made dresses in football, cars and trains fabrics.
What is your aim?
I am working to help fill a gap in the market for gender stereotype free clothing. It has been refreshing to come across so many parents who feel the same, and to put a smile on the faces of Mum’s who thought they’d never see their daughter wearing a dress. I think the girls clothing market will always be dominated by pink, princess sparkle and butterflies, but I’m so glad to be able to offer an alternative.
What sizes are available and how much do they cost?
The sizes available are: 1-2 years, 3-4 years, 5-6 years and 7-8 years. The prices range from £18 – £28 depending on the fabric.
Where can we find out more about your amazing dresses?
Thank you Tracy!
