Wednesday March is a retro-inspired, ladies clothing line, based in Cornwall, UK. It all started with a little vintage boutique, The March Hare, in the beautiful seaside town of East Looe. Within days of opening, it became obvious that the beautiful vintage garments were not going to fit most of the people who walked through the door (real vintage clothing is way smaller than modern sizing) and reproductions were required. A shiny new Bernina sewing machine was purchased and a line of retro-style frocks and skirts designed. The shop closed at the end of March 2014, after 4 wonderful years, as it was impossible for one woman to make enough frocks to fill the place and run it at the same time. Wednesday March continues to go from strength to strength, after business outgrew the premises and set-up!
There’s nothing quite like a good outfit to make a girl feel wonderful and that’s what Wednesday March aims to do. Whether you’re a re-enactor off to a festival or the Goodwood Revival, a vintage or retro enthusiast, a wedding guest looking for something a little ‘different’ or you just appreciate a good frock, there is probably something for you. Just pick your style and fabric and get in touch by phone, email, or social media message. If you can’t see what you want or don’t even know, something can usually be designed to suit. Sample fabrics can be posted to you. At present, there is no online shop with a “Add to basket” button because that’s not the way bespoke works. The customer plays a much larger part in the process but this also ensures that they get exactly the garment they want. Style and originality, your way.
By buying a Wednesday March garment, you’re supporting British manufacturing, too. Good, huh?
The Wednesday March line is inspired by vintage and classic styling but made in modern sizes, designed for modern figures. Women these days tend to be larger all over (food is no longer rationed and life is far less physical) and with considerably thicker waists. They are also less inclined to squeeze themselves into shapewear. Garments can be tailored to almost any shape or size but some work better than others. Since the closure of the shop, other garments have been added to the repertoire, with a line of ladies tailored shirts being particularly popular but other tailoring is also available. The aim is for you to find your perfect style and to feel on top of the world in it.
