See What Others Are Saying

Thank you for all your lovely messages about my dress! It's from a #smallbusiness called @dovetailedlondon, and the team there are on a mission to encourage and inspire women to add colour and print to their wardrobes. I love a bold, bright colour.

I am in love with my Camille dress. It is beyond flattering; so beautifully cut and finished. The polka dot lining is almost too cute to be hidden inside.


What a fantastic weekend I had. The studio is so easy to get to and I was welcomed by Adaku with a big smile and a cup of tea! I bought my fabric on the day and with help, chose 2 different fabrics to make up my Camille dress.


Just completed the Philippa pinafore workshop. Two fantastic days of sewing. Adaku is a wonderful teacher, patient and kind. I learnt lots of new skills. Will definitely try another workshop as the fabric is so beautiful.


There's always a reason why you need a variety of bags (same with shoes of course!!). I joined the Tote bag workshop at the end of November to broaden my sewing experience having recently rekindled my passion for making clothes and accessories.


What more can I say WOW beautiful box of goodies delivered quickly. I'm now due another one and as excited thank you Dovetailed . At some point I shall make something out of your fabulous book x


I can't rate this sewing pattern enough. It's really easy to follow, has visual pictures to help place what the verbal pattern is saying to create the trousers as you go along. Modern style of paper pattern which you can either cut out or copy using a tracing wheel and copier paper keeps easier than the original thin paper style of pattern of yesterday for a future re-use.

This is Dovetailed

I will never forget the images of garment workers facing enormous risk of death or serious physical injury as the Rana Plaza Building collapsed underneath them in 2013. I remember saying to myself that if I was to ever run a fashion brand, I would never put profit before people and the planet.

I'm Adaku, owner and founder of Dovetailed London, a clothing brand that is on a mission to inspire women to add colour to their wardrobes. Yet we are so much more than a fashion brand. 

Whether it is adding colour to grey, manufacturing in Africa or encouraging customers to vote with their pockets for the sort of world in which they want to live, I am inspired to build a 'good life' business that puts people and the planet over profits one dress at a time.
