Childrens Wool Jumpers

When it comes to keeping your kids warm, wool comes into its own especially at this time of the year. With that extra chill in the air, there is nothing cosier than a soft Merino wool jumper.

Childrens Fancy Dress

Now that we are half way through the school holidays, many of us adults are no doubt busy thinking up great activities to keep the little ones amused! Hardly surprising then that summer is London’s most popular time for kid’s fancy dress parties – outdoor birthday parties, fancy dress events at summer festivals and of course Mad Hatter Tea parties.

With this in mind, we wanted to tell you about the Dressing Up Chest – an independent artisan business, run by the very talented Libby Boalch. She hand-makes fancy dress costumes for little boys & girls and enjoys a loyal following throughout London. Costumes are made to order, either individually or for groups / events.

Each costume is made by hand, with great care and competitively priced. Libby excels at making whatever costume your child requires – cowboy (and cowgirl) outfits, clown suits, little red riding hood outfits, pirate and sailor suits.

Special birthday party deals:
If you are planning a birthday party for your child this summer, the Dressing Up Chest can provide a fairy costume (complete with wings, wand and little tutu) or a pirate costume (bandana, eye patch and striped trousers) for £12 per child!

The kids can have great fun dressing up and playing party games AND they get to take home the outfits afterwards!
