Quality classic clothes, Handmade just for YOU!

I first learned to 'sew' in the Girl Scouts, where I accidentally stitched my first sewing project to my skirt. It wasn't until after my children were born that I really taught myself to sew with a sewing machine. As an avid gardener, I love making 'something from nothing'. Sewing clothing was a natural extension of that DIY spirit. I started making clothing for my own children, and eventually I found Etsy, which is my full time career.

I have a strong appreciation for the natural world and strive to run an Earth-friendly business. Many items in my shop are made with vintage materials and fabrics, along with some newer materials that are sourced as sustainably as possible. I use reclaimed and vintage laces and eyelet trims in my flowergirl dresses to create products you can feel good about.

Even my shipping and packaging materials are recyclable. Using vintage fabrics, recycled materials and locally sourced resources makes for higher quality products with a much smaller impact on the Earth, all while supporting the community. Thanks for supporting Handmade!

Additional policies and FAQs
Current production time is currently ~2-3 weeks, plus shipping.

1) Care for Linen and Embroidered Items:
Hand-washing with line dry or dry-cleaning recommended. Embroidered garments are best washed on cold/delicate cycle and hung to dry, heated dry may damage your garments. Embroidered shirts will have a protective backing which can start to come loose, just re-fuse with an iron on high heat, no steam, to reattach.

2) Size Chart for Shortalls and Longalls.
Below are the approximate FINISHED measurements for shortalls and longalls. Measure from shoulder to crotch snaps down the front of your child or jon jon. You want the outfit to be approximately 1-1.5 inches longer than your child so they can sit and move comfortably, and allows for some growing room. Jon jon's will be made to standard sizing only. All jon jon's are fully lined with snaps at the leg and have extra length on the shoulder straps so you can adjust button placement for growth.

Size, Shoulder to crotch, Longall length, Total Width
3m ~14" ~19" ~21"
6m ~15" ~21" ~22"
9m ~16" ~23" ~22"
12m ~17" ~25" ~23"
18m ~18" ~26.5" ~23.5"
2t ~19" ~28" ~24"
3t ~20" ~30" ~25.5"

3) Size chart with approximate measurements for shorts and pants. Waist and hip circumference should be taken on the child and serve as reference points, not finished width measurements, for the garment. Pant/shorts length is best measured on comparable clothing, laid out flat. All pants are hemmed with a generous 1-2" hem allowance and size 5 and larger will come with adjustable buttonhole elastic waistbands for any shorts or pants purchased WITH a suit or suspenders set. This adjustable waistband is available by request on any pants/shorts- just let me know.
