made with care for little ones to wear

The Story of Belles and Bugs

When my daughter was born, I wanted to dress her in beautiful clothing. I also had one rule for myself after witnessing the messes that babies can make- nothing that I had to hand wash! I quickly found that the cost of the clothes I liked for her added up to an absurd amount.

So when she turned one, I bought my first sewing machine and taught myself how to sew from online tutorials and Youtube videos. I had no intention of selling baby clothes until people started asking where to purchase the dresses that my daughter was wearing. And so Belles and Bugs was born!

When I opened my shop, I knew firsthand what was important to moms. These dresses had to be three things- great quality, affordable, and machine washable. Several years later, I still operate on these three principles.

I have had so much fun making custom clothing for children all over the country and even abroad. I am very honored that my dresses have been worn to baptisms, birthday parties, Christmas celebrations, and many other special events. That's why every order is made with much love and care.
