About Wagtails Dancewear
Wagtails Dancewear began in 2007 in response to the many enquiries received each time Linda and Steve went
to Rock'n'Roll gigs, asking where they got their outfits. Although the business has grown considerably since
then, it remained a small, family run organisation proud to deliver a friendly and efficient service. The business was
handed on to Dorothy and Iain in October 2014 and continues to be run in the same manner. Linda and Steve remain connected
to the business providing help and advice. Dorothy has a degree in textiles design and has in the past made wedding dresses
and bespoke children's applique clothing. The exceptional quality and attention to detail in Wagtails products will
hence remain unchanged.
When you shop with Wagtails, your order will be handled by us, Dorothy and Iain. We are still learning all the time about
the world of Rock'n'Roll, but have made good progress with our education and with the continuing support of Linda and
Steve we are happy to answer any questions you may have about our stock. All of our stock and designs have been taken over
unchanged and future designs will have plenty of input from the previous owners.
To ensure the best possible quality, all our dresses, skirts and neckerchiefs plus some of the belts and taffeta petticoats
are made by Wagtails in Hampshire. Although this limits the volume of products we can produce, it does make the Wagtails
Dancewear label more exclusive! We know you love Rock'n'Roll, 1950s music and the wonderful styles of the era
and know wearing the right clothes helps complete the fabulous 50s experience.
