Seller was very quick to answer my questions and requests, and she took in and added pockets to the dress for a very reasonable price. The dress is well made, the fabric placement is amazing, and the shipping was very fast. Thank you so much!

About

When life gives you lemons...make clothes!

We've all heard the saying "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade". Well, this is how my Etsy shop came into being. In 2008 I quit a wonderful, but low paying job as a resident artist in hopes of going back to waiting tables so I could stop living paycheck to paycheck. Turns out it wasn't as easy as it has always been for me to find work because we were in the midst of a recession. Jobless for months and living on food stamps and my boyfriend's generosity, my dad surprises me with a computer for Christmas, and my mom, a digital camera. A week later I open my Etsy shop and a week after than I make my first sale (to Germany!). My life had hit a low point, and I was willing to try anything to dig myself out of that hole. If I had found that job I was looking for I probably wouldn't be making a living doing what I love.

HI there!

everything that you see here is made by me, in my home in portland, oregon.
i love collecting unique, vintage fabrics to use in my designs whenever possible. because i tend to work with vintage and hard to find fabrics, most of my creations tend to be one of a kind.

if you see something that you love but it is not in your size, convo me and i may be able to make something similar and possibly even identical. i am happy to do custom orders whenever possible.

***5% of all of love to love you's etsy sales will being going to Nandini and her family in india who is being sponsored by love to love you through childfund international.

i've tried to answer some questions you may have below...if there is something else you need to ask, please do not hesitate to convo me. i check my email several times daily.

If you purchase an item and change your mind before you pay, please let me know so that i can relist it.

Additional policies and FAQs
Interested in a custom order?
See something you like that isn't in your size? Want it in another color? A little longer? I would love to make something just for you.

Many of the fabrics I use are vintage and I only have a couple yards, so I may not be able to replicate some items, but I'll do my best to accomadate your wishes. I will need to know what size you wear or you can give me your measurements (even better!)

Size charts can vary brand to brand, so be sure to take a look at the one below before you ask for a certain size. Please don't hesitate to convo me if you have any questions.
