The 'Dress Room' and Dress Appointment booking

I live in the area and am delighted to have found Polka Dots and Petticoats! I visited yesterday for the first of what will probably be many times in the future. The appointment only shop is filled with beautiful vintage-style clothing and the quality is really excellent. I bought a gorgeous dress, petticoat (and yes, they are as frothy and soft as described!) and pashmina for a summer wedding. Jackie was really welcoming and helpful, and I especially liked that I was left alone to browse and try things on - she didn't hover outside the changing room like some small independents do. The price of items is extremely competitive with high street brands, the quality is superior (for example, to Lindy Bop), and the range is very good. I have already recommended to friends and will be back! Thank you, Jackie x
