Here are a few accessories to add to your bloomers and dresses. I'm sure you have more items than you think, that'll make your desired look complete. It's such fun to mix and match, and experiment with clothes. But, some of the items below just go perfectly, and you may struggle to find them on the high street. They also make lovely gifts. If you're not sure exactly what your 'dearly deserved' is into, why not buy them a gift card?
Aprons go in and out of fashion, eh? But they're thankfully becoming a necessary part of kitchen life again, when we're all moving away from the environmentally unfriendly habit of washing our clothes so frequently. Why not look the part when you're cooking that feast, and keep your clothes cleaner in the process? 100% cotton, 100% zero fabric waste in either of the patterns here. 100% biodegradable.
Shawls add something else to an outfit. And the best bit is they can be thrown into your handbag, 'just in case'. These organic cotton shawls are luxuriously long, and light enough for keeping the sun off your shoulders on a sunny day. But they're also insulating and warm enough to throw over yourself as you acclimatise to the colder months.
All of the socks and stockings, here, are hand crafted on an antique circular sock machine and can be made any size from UK 4 and much larger (see my blog post, https://www.thewitchsbritches.com/blogs/news/the-magic-of-my-circular-sock-machine)
The silk/alpaca yarn soft and....silky! Some shades are dyed by the skein. This can sometimes mean there is a small difference in shade between each knitted stocking.
The merino lace yarn is very soft and ever so slightly fluffy. Again, there can be differences in shades between the stockings because of the dyeing process.
Over the knee stocking length seems to hold up with least support, but you may be reassured to add a length of additional elastic beneath the lace. Any stockings higher than lower thigh length will require garters.
The hard wearing sock yarn will literally wear and wear. They'll become your 'go-to' socks for walking as well as for around the house.
Hand washing is a must for the finer stockings, if you want to keep them looking good and prevent them from felting. Where possible, I will send these lovely stockings on with a little extra yarn for any darning and mending. The harder wearing 80% wool socks and boot socks can be washed in the machine at 40 degrees.
Do remember, when ordering, these are one-off individually made items. If you would like to order more than one pair of the same stocking, please do send me a message.
