Your little sweetie is as pretty as a picture. Literally.
Beloved illustrator Mandy Sutcliffe, the creator of Belle & Boo, has drawn inspiration from the vintage silhouettes and subdued colour palettes that are hallmarks of her prints to create a collection of clothing for real little girls.
Choose from a delicate cotton dress, gorgeous smocked top and cosy bloomers — all of which the wide-eyed Belle would happily wear on her adventures. The bunny rabbit-patterned lining is an homage to her best buddy, Boo.
And worth a thousand words.
