100% Cotton Comfort in Playful Fashions Designed for Active Youngsters
Hello! My name is Rene, and Berry Patch USA is my children's 100% cotton clothing line of 30+ years. All Berry Patch clothing is designed and made by me in Eugene, Oregon. My favorite materials to work with are heirloom quality modern quilting fabrics known for their gorgeous designer prints and durability. I especially love dynamic color combinations and cheerful themes.
Because I feel children should enjoy being children, I strive to design clothing that reflects a child's fun loving nature. My goal is to create comfortable, playful, wholesome clothing that makes children feel special... beautifully made clothes that they will love to wear!
I started this journey when my daughter was born in the 1980s. Back then, 100% cotton children’s clothing wasn’t sold in mainstream stores. Wanting only soft natural fibers next to my new baby's delicate skin, I decided to make her clothes myself. I had studied art and design in college, but didn't pursue it as a vocation until I discovered how much I loved designing clothing for children. What began as an aspiration to make comfortable, unique clothing for my own little girl, has blossomed into a rewarding business I have enjoyed for most of my adult life!

I am happy to make exchanges on my standard sizes for a different size of the same item. If you are exchanging to a higher priced size range, up-charges might apply. The item must be returned to me unused, in new condition within 30 days of your order's ship date. For your protection, please provide me with a tracking number when returning merchandise for exchange, and contact me to make arrangements before initiating the return.

REFUNDS & CANCELLATIONS
My clothing is made to order, and under most circumstances I do not offer cash refunds once an order has been made. Cancellations are accepted, so long as they are made prior to production. If you need to cancel all or part of an order please contact me at once so this can be accomplished before I begin the production process.
Additional policies and FAQs
My clothing sizes run similar to higher quality clothing lines sold in better brand children's clothing stores (such as Gymboree, etc). For most children of average height and weight (infants thru 8 yrs) their size will generally correspond to their age. Most of my skirts and dresses fall at or just below the knee and are designed to be worn shorter as your child grows. My 4-tiered skirts are mid-calf length. Custom lengths are easily accommodated.
Once your child reaches half way to the next age, I recommend ordering a size up. This especially applies to infant sizes, as babies grow quickly. If your child is large or small for their age adjust accordingly. If you'd like help with sizing, I'd be happy to assist you.
CUSTOM SIZES: I can also provide custom sizing on most of my made to order listings. Contact me to discuss your special sizing needs.
All of my garments go right in the washer and dryer. To keep them looking new I recommend cool water wash and a med/low dryer setting. Use only color safe bleach. If the fabric has a gold or pearlescent finish (specified in the listing) I recommend turning it inside out and washing on a gentle cycle. Hang dresses and skirts when dry. Iron on steam setting if desired.
My Berry Patch line is made of fine quality 100% cotton fabrics. All of my knit fabrics are pre-washed to minimize further shrinkage. The high quality woven designer prints I use shrink very little, if at all (0-3%). I add a little extra room when sizing my garments to allow for any slight residual shrinkage of these fabrics.
ABOUT MY GARMENT DYED COORDINATES:
I hand-dye my solid color tops to match each outfit. I use permanent, colorfast, eco-friendly dyes that I custom formulate to match each print. After dying, I launder each item in hot water 3 times to thoroughly remove all the excess dye. If it appears that an item has been washed it's because of this process - everything I sell is new.
