ANTIFORM x YOU rekindles a love story between us and our clothing - reclaiming fashion from the anonymous high street and back into the personal, the cherished, and the unique.
Using a panel of your own cherished fabric, the Antiform team invite you to recapture the values of the past in a modern aesthetic, taking you on a journey from fable & fabric to finished garment with a story of your own making.
Choose the outer fabrics, trims and waistband of the Antiform Folk Dress from our library of amazing reclaimed heritage and UK-made fabrics, and then make it YOU with a personalised front panel, with the Antiform team on hand to help guide you through the process. If you’re in Bristol, you can even visit the studio to see your dress being made.
The Antiform Folk Dress is one of our signature styles, developed over 8 Antiform collections. Our well-loved, classic fit and blocked panels help to create a super-flattering shape that's still easy to wear and to move around in.

1. CHOOSE STYLE & SIZE
Choose a Folk Dress in either size 1 (8-10), size 2 (12-14) or size 3 (16-18)
2. CHOOSE YOUR FRONT PANEL
The aim of Antiform x You is to create a garment that perfectly reflects your own style, personality and heritage. Our front panel is where we like to highlight our most gorgeous & precious fabrics – so for Antiform x You we encourage you make it completely YOU with a personalised front panel of your own cherished fabric, with the Antiform team on hand to help guide you through the process.
The fabric could be from a garment you can no longer wear but love the print, a fabric sample you’ve held onto, or a personal fabric treasure of some sort. The only requirement is that the dimensions of the fabric swatch need to be at least 41cm x 43cm.
3. ...OR CHOOSE FROM OUR FABRIC ARCHIVE
Alternatively, you are very welcome to describe the colour, pattern, fabric type or texture to us and we can send you images from our extensive fabric archive to choose from!
Via skype, email or in person, we’ll chat with you about what the dress is for, what colours you like wearing and what you’ll wear it with.
We’ll then mock up the fabric choices for the rest of the dress based on your preferences and the panel you choose for the centre, and OK it with you.
When all is good to go, we’ll send you an invoice (£90 – the same price as our standard Folk Dress!) – and then we’ll get making!
5. IN THE MAKING
Your new custom Folk Dress will be ready within 14 days – don’t forget if it’s for a special occasion or a gift let us know and give yourself plenty of time to make your design choices!
If you’re able to get to Bristol, you can come to the studio to see your dress being made, or simply to pick up your dress and see where the magic happens!
