Ivy & Me Apparel
In late 2011 Meredith opened Ivy & Me, the clothing brand she'd always dreamed of starting. Her idea was to provide quality, handmade clothes for young women by young women. Her designs bring bold, colorful patterns and dyes to classic and modern lines.
Here at Ivy & Me we value the original, in art and in every person. We design for every woman, but will make items to fit the individual. We love to create; each piece is a painstaking work of art. The process of hand dyeing, painting and sewing may take more time, but we enjoy every minute and are proud of our results.
Ivy & Me is just starting out, but we've already been so well received by the community! We love working with others, promoting others and participating in the handmade and craft circle.
Ivy & Me - sophisticated, confident, original with a touch of indie-modern flair.

Designer, Maker, Writer
Brooke is a writer with a passion for painting and design. She studied International Development and Anthropology at Montreal's McGill University. She says nothing beats the satisfaction of making beautiful things with your hands.
We are so happy you are choosing to wear a unique work of art. Every garment is carefully hand-painted, hand-dyed and hand-sewn right here in the USA by two sisters.
Each piece is sewn by a couture-trained seamstress and is of the utmost quality. We do like to leave quirks in the paint and dye to reflect our one-of-a-kind, handmade style. We celebrate the original, in art and in every person!
Since we devote so much time to each piece, we are currently a small-volume operation and are not able to take custom orders. Please check the measurements below to make sure you’re getting exactly what you expect.
