Dawn French & Helen Teague Signatures


Tapestry fluting scoop neck tunic.


Today I wore this top, after dying my hair pink to go with it, well it's fair to say when I went shopping people were doing double takes. Then when I got home there was a knock at my door, an Anglian Water lady, and as I opened the door she stepped back and said "I love those colours, and your hair"
So no more will I be able to report to you just how wonderful your clothes are, and how they have restored my self esteem. Thank you so much for everything xxxxxxx I felt like a million dollars today x


New Orders.


I can't wait for my new beautiful orders to come, I'm going to lay them out on my bed and just sigh and lie amongst them... such beautifulness to behold..... Ooer, did I just say that out loud....




I am so sad that after over 20 years of fabulous clothing and excellent customer care you will close. However, I thank you all for your help and kindness and wish you all best wishes for the future.

I will in the next week or so finally send you a picture of my sixteen47 outfit I wore to my daughter's wedding last September.

You have said there are prints to come in the next few week and I'm wondering if there will be any summery skirts?

My best wishes and many thanks to you all.

Hi There
SO sad to hear you are finishing up. Are there new items to be released before you go? If so when? On the announcement there were some glorious patterns and I am hoping they will appear in garments soon. Many thanks

It's been great


Thank you so much for all the wonderful clothes over the years. I've been with you from the start and remember my first visit to your shop. My eyes were out on stalks and I couldn't believe my luck! My several wardrobes are exclusively 1647 and I've loved how great and stylish you've made me feel. I'm just gutted that you're closing but want to wish you all that's good for your future ventures. Thanks again.

Our Posting Costs

We charge an at-cost flat posting rate and do not add to our garment prices to compensate for apparently free/low postage.
We do not pay for return postage.

We try and be as fair as we can and welcome feedback on our policy.

Our postage is a flat rate, whatever the size of your parcel.

Our postage cost covers the cost and ensures that staff who handle your order can be properly paid.

Most customer orders are for 2 or more items. If you order a single item and think the postage is too high let us know and we will credit you part of the cost.
