It's Christmastime again! We just wanted to send a quick note, as we prepare to wrap up our year, to thank all of you for your passion for beautiful clothes and your commitment to supporting small businesses! Thank you for another great year with Poppy Whitaker!
For our final 2015 release, we have created a very special cape. It can be worn over a dress or paired with denim, however your girls style it up, it will be so cute and cozy, and it's reversible!
Our site currently has sale inventory, so be sure to check it out. As always, keep up with us on facebook and instagram for sneak peeks and new releases. We wish y'all a very Merry Christmas and we'll see you in 2016!

The months of May and June will go down in the Poppy Whitaker history books as a deep study in bias. Every dress we made (see examples below) had some sort of bias trim, was cut on a bias, or had a bias print.
The Merriam- Webster Dictionary defines bias as "a line diagonal to the grain of a fabric; especially : a line at a 45 degree angle to the selvage often utilized in the cutting of garments for smoother fit". This, of course, pertains to sewing. But after these two months we are not bias toward bias. Which according to Merriam- Webster means we do not have "a strong interest in something or ability to do something". Albeit a beautiful outcome and time well spent, we will opt to cut straight lines for a while.
Example A: bias print gingham with bias straps
Example B: knit bias binding
Example C: more bias straps and binding
Example D: bias ties and binding
Check in next week for updates on the July 4th dress.....
