You've been loving our handmade and vintage Etsy picks, so we'll try and find loads more in 2009. Today I discovered the UK-based brand Malphi, which specialises in whimsical, country-style aprons, bloomers and dresses. While I'd love to see the dresses worn as they are in the pictures (perhaps while doing something crafty in a quaint cottage) the two styles above - Dana Ashley on the left and Verity Hope on the right - would look just as pretty teamed with wool tights and boots on the freezing streets of a city. They're available via the Etsy shop in dollars or shop in pounds from the retail website MalphiStyle.com.
