Welcome to the Dressing Up Chest
The Dressing Up Chest is the place to find high quality, handmade children's fancy dress costumes, dressing up clothes and anything your child might need to create the character he or she would like to become in their imagination. On this website you will see a range of traditional, age appropriate costumes for children of all ages including pirates, fairies, superheroes, knights and characters from fairy tales and fiction. However I specialise in bespoke costumes which can be designed in collaboration with your child and you.
I have many years experience of dressmaking and making handmade costumes for children and started the Dressing Up Chest to offer a refreshing alternative to the mass-produced costumes made from poor quality fabrics readily available. I believe that children deserve to have good quality costumes as individual as they are themselves.
Each costume is created using high quality fabrics and trimmings which are washable and can easily be worn as every day clothes. Despite this you will find the costumes have an affordable price tag.
The range is constantly growing and if you can't find the costume or character you require here on the web site I am also more than happy to create bespoke costumes.
The possibilities are endless. Please take a look inside.
