My daughter can't wait to wear this for her birthday party! She loved her dress from last year from Baby Hobbes Design. We love how unique and beautiful these dresses are. They also fit for years since they adjust!

Creative and Romantic Children Store

I always loved cloths, andl fabrics have the ability to transform into beautiful clothing. I would find my self draping fabric on me, imagining what it could turn into.
Then I had my first child, and a GIRL. I knew I just had to start sewing for her....and all of you.

I don't offer many multiples of my dresses; I want YOU to feel unique and that you have something special. I love to run with ideas and sew from my creative heart, I feel like an artist when I play with fabrics and textures and I never quite know how it will turn out, until it's finished. And once it's finished, I often like to move on and find my next creative look.

I try not to copy from another designer-though I too, have had to have THAT ONE DRESS that I couldn't get my hands on. AND guess what? I sewed it up! That's part of the talent of sewing and pattern drafting; knowing how to recreate a LOOK. But please don't ask me to do it UNLESS it's a style that is no longer available to buy directly from the designer AND your heart is sad without it.

Lastly, everything is made by me, with my hands and my sewing machine. I aim for perfection, I check each item not only for looks but also for durability. Will it rip if I pull on it? Will the straps keep the bodice straight on top. But friends, I am not a machine and my lines won't always be perfectly straight-which I think make the look even more unique. And once in a while you'll will find a loose thread. Go ahead and tie it in a knot and then cut the thread off. No biggie????

Thanks for spending time in my shop and helping my wickedly small hand made business grow.

Thank you for shopping at Baby Hobbes design. Each item in my shop is handmade and designed for you the buyer. I ask for measurements so I can craft in the accurate size. However, if you cannot provide measurements; please see individual listing for pattern suggested size.

Baby Hobbes Design accepts most credit cards along with PayPal. You do not have to have a PayPal account to pay an invoice from PayPal.
Please see each individual item for turn around time (before shipping). I mostly sell custom made to order, right now my turnaround time before shipping is 4-6 weeks. With RTS, Ready to ship orders, most orders are shipped next business day. I ship via USPS Priority Mail with delivery tracking number; and usually arrives within 3 business days. U.S. orders only, holidays not included. I am NOT responsible for packages that are lost, stolen or delayed if you have not contacted me to purchase shipping insurance prior to paying.

I ship to the address listed on your PayPal account so please make sure your shipping address on your PayPal account is correct before placing an order. Your order may be delayed if your account address is different. I cannot be held responsible if your order has been shipped to the wrong address due to your PayPal address being incorrect.

Refunds and Exchanges
You are a valued customer at Baby Hobbes Design, and I want you to be happy with your purchase. However at BHD, everything is cut and sewn per customer sizing and request. It is very important that the customer supplies accurate measurements of chest size, waist size and height (measuring from upper armpit to just below the knee).

If customer cannot supply measurements, a size chart of finished product size found in most listing should be used to accurately place a size order. Please note these measurements will vary slightly since I use " my grow with me technique" (available when listed) where the dress is slightly cut bigger, but is cinched at waist and straps.

Ready to ship items have the accurate finished sizes; therefore it too follows same policy stated above.

Unless there is a defect or a mistake made on my part, there are no refunds, no returns and no exchanges at Baby Hobbes Design.
Additional policies and FAQs
For best measurements. Have your child stand straight with both feet about 6 inch apart. Measure waist and chest while child has his/hers arms in a T position.
Measure length by placing measuring tape at the top of armpit(T-position again) and then continuing on to knee. Since item is custom made, dress can be altered longer or shorter - please advise.
Also; since everything is handmade, please allow for minor discrepancies. Sometimes a straight line just isn't a perfectly straight. And sometimes a button hole is a centimeter off. Fabric varies in colors and availability; each cut piece won't always look like the listing; but I work very hard to offer you the same quality.
