My Bio

Founded in 1981, Patricia Dawson Clothes is one of a few remaining ladies clothing retailers who design and make all their clothes in Yorkshire, England. With over 30 years manufacturing experience we produce town and country clothing for ladies over the age of 50.

From Leisurewear to Classics, Cruisewear to Designer Fleeces, all our items are individually designed and made in small quantities so they remain exclusive.

Over recent years we have seen an increasing demand for plus size clothing and requests for longer lengths. Many ladies cannot seem to find plus size high street fashion which delivers a good fit. We understand the more mature figure and in October 2011 extended our size range from 12 to 28.

Our range appeals to the over 50 age group who not only want everyday wear, but also have a demanding calendar and need smart elegant clothing which may be suitable for a range of occasions. Our ladies want to be well dressed and fashionable, but also want comfort, but not at the cost of style.

Each garment we make, either a stock item or one specially made for someone, is individually made by one of our team of highly skilled seamstresses at our studio in Bishop Thornton, Harrogate.

We opened our first shop in Harrogate in 1986 and are happy to say we still have customers from those days.
Our retail shop can now be found in the heart of Herriot country in the small market town of Thirsk, North Yorkshire:

45 Market Place
North Yorkshire
Y07 1HA

Tel: 01845 574413
Opening Hours: Monday-Saturday 9am - 5pm

Over the years our business has grown and five years ago we decided we should head into the 21st century and go online. Our website has allowed us to reach new customers not just from Yorkshire, but from across the UK.
