Back in the Habit
In 1971 Carr & Westley used to manufacture nuns habits at our current site in Kent, England.
Things have changed a lot since then, but we are still using some of the same skills on our Carr and Westley branded products. We are proud of our history of craftsmanship. Attached is a page from one of our old catalogues displaying three items. This was also the year the UK went decimal, with prices listed in both sterling and decimal.
All dresses are well made in good quality black crimpelene. There is a long back zip and a pocket in the right hand side seam. Belts are supplied with all dresses if required, and dresses and skirts will be made to any length ordered.
The skirt has three panels back and front and is fitted with a waist band and side zip.
Any garment can be supplied separately, lined or unlined as needed.
In order that we may choose the most suitable size, please give bust, waist and hip measurements, full back length for dresses, full length including waist band for skirts, and underarm sleeve length.
We are prepared to modify any style to your requirements if a quantity of dresses is required. Please do not hesitate to ask us if you have any problems you think we can solve.
