Fashion That Memories Are Made Of

Sailor Rose dresses aren't designed just for Sunday-best. Sailor Rose dresses are meant to be played in, to have adventures in, to look just as good rumpled as they do freshly ironed.

Inspired by a love of vintage, this children's clothing range is based on the American tradition of making clothes at home out of something that has already been used and has a history. These clothes are designed to look as beautiful when worn by the third child as by the first.

Sailor Rose hopes their children's collection will inspire time and time again - be handed down through families, be that lucky find at the thrift shop, be dug out of the attic many years later and loved once more.

The more I look at the Sailor Rose children's collection, the more I love it; and I love the Sailor Rose philosophy. Let girls enjoy wearing beautiful dresses, but never be precious about what they are wearing. Let them play, climb, hike, camp, sleep in their dresses. Let their clothing become a part of their childhood memories, then stitch them, patch them, and hand them down to be loved by someone else.
