Sidmouth fashion goes big

New fashion store opens on Saturday for Sidmouth’s larger ladies

LARGER women in Sidmouth will soon have more chance of finding something to wear.

Julie Trickey will open the doors to her Overly Gorgeous Collection of clothes for women over size 16, at Libra Court of Fore Street on Saturday, from 10am.

A designer dressmaker, Julie said she noticed women were not being offered well-fitted or attractive clothing because of their size.

She said: “I don’t think it’s fair that larger ladies are given a limited, poor quality choice.”
