The Story 

Dorothy is named after  my mum. She was brought up during WW2 and like many of that generation, make do and mend became part of their life. Her philosophy was buy good quality and it will last.  She always invested in good quality clothes and shoes that would work hard for many years. Only a practical shirt dress could be a Dorothy dress. If it wasn’t practical, useful and made to last she wouldn’t entertain it.
