I'm Emily, owner and designer here at The Vintage Sweetheart. My fabulous team and I create stunning handmade baby & children's dresses, accessories and waistcoats for parties, weddings and special occasions in a huge range of sizes. All our items are hand made here in the UK and are made out of the finest quality cotton, zips and thread. Quality is really important to us and our products are well-made and built to last. 

By using premium materials and UK craftsmanship, our designs really stand out from the crowd. 

We are extremely proud of our designs; Whether it's the stunning fabrics we use, the massive range of sizes we make, our lovely company values or the extremely reasonable prices for handmade items, we believe The Vintage Sweetheart is truly special.

All the style names are named after important women in my life; Wendy is my mum, Gabriella is my daughter and Susan & Lucia my aunts (to name just a few!) Family & friends are really important to me so it's a lovely way to incorporate them.

Our dresses & waistcoats are available in a huge range of sizes from 0-3 months right up to 13-14 years which in addition to everyday and party wear makes them absolutely perfect as bridesmaid and flower girl dresses (or Page Boy outfits). Not only that, but we usually have matching hair accessories & bow ties too. All our girl's items are in stock and ready to ship right away. If we don't have your size, most of our styles can be ordered and it will say this on the product page. All our boy's items are available through our ordering system (we don't keep these in stock) and are subject to fabric availability. 

As well as creating beautiful dresses & waistcoats we are also really proud of our working ethics. All our items are handmade here in the UK, creating jobs and paying a fair wage for many dressmakers whilst also boosting our own economy. When I first started out the company in 2016 I was adamant I wasn't going to use a factory abroad to ensure that no child-labour has been used in the creation of my designs. We are a lovely company (at least we think so!) creating beautiful items to spread a little joy in life. We love seeing our designs in action so remember to send us any photos.

We hope you love our products and have as much fun shopping as we've had designing them. If you have questions at all please don't hesitate to contact us at or connect with us on our many social media channels. 

 With love,
