Dot & Bee Clothing features handmade women's wear and accessories. The majority of the pieces you'll find on Dot & Bee are vintage inspired, drawing mainly from the 50s and 60s, by way of style or fabric. Most pieces are at least partly created from vintage fabrics or details, such as trim or buttons. With Dot & Bee, retro meets modern in the sweetest little way possible.
What's in a Name?
'Dot & Bee' comes from a combination of the two people behind the clothing line...myself (Brooke, the 'Bee' part), and my grandmother Dorothy (sewer extraordinaire also known as 'Dot'). While the lovely Dottie is no longer with us, Dot & Bee serves as a way of keeping her (occasionally sassy) memory alive. I attribute every ounce of sewing and creative fashion skill I possess to this wonderful lady, and create every piece you will find in my collection on her trusty (much older than me) Singer sewing machine. Even some of the vintage fabrics used have been passed down to me from her enormous fabric collection. I hope you feel the love in 'our' creations as much as I do!
