About

"She worketh willingly with her hands" ~ Psalm 31:13

This is the Bible verse I received when I started my very first official sewing project in 1979 - a prairie skirt made from a navy calico with little purple flowers. Our church was having a summer program to teach the young girls how to sew. At the end of the meetings, they gave each of us a special little picture with our name and this verse on it, framed in fabric. I recently found this little treasure buried in my hope chest and placed it where I could see it every day and remember.

I learned to sew at a very young age from my mother who made all our clothes when we were little. I, in turn, sewed clothing for my family until my kids reached an age when they didn't want homemade clothing anymore. So, I began making window treatments and eventually switched to sewing quilts and other crafts.

I left the 'working world' in 2006 and ventured into my own entrepreneurship making and selling Quillows at local craft shows (stop by my other shop www.uniquequillowstore.etsy.com). During this time, I stumbled upon a few vintage children's clothing patterns of my mother's and decided to dabble a bit in making a few to take to the craft shows. Before I knew it, they sold out and I had so much fun making them that I decided to open an Etsy shop just for children's clothing.

Now, years later, my little boutique has flourished and is just where I want it to be. I enjoy making classic, simple childrens clothing with designer fabrics! I also enjoy meeting new customers daily and making new friends in the process! Thank you for stopping by my store and I hope you find something for your little one! ♥

    I have the immense pleasure of commuting to work daily just down the hall in my own home. I truly enjoy spending my days 'playing' with beautiful fabric - creating little outfits for special customers! ♥

Payment
Payment is accepted via PayPal or credit card.

~ ♥ ~ I have many people asking if I offer any discounts and I have a simple response: If you're shopping on Etsy, aren't you looking for something unique, made with care, and not mass produced under third-world standards? As an artisan, each item I make is hand created by me, just for you. The quality of my work is firm and therefore my prices are firm. I don't discount my quality and I don't buy discount fabric so I can't discount my products. The only time I WILL offer a price break is occasionally on shipping or on model items which are ready to ship, simply because I want to clear the closet out as items can get "shop worn" from just hanging around too long. I guaranteee my products and your satisafaction with each purchase!

THANK YOU for understanding and for your support of individual artisans! :)
Shipping
Items labelled "Ready to Ship" will be mailed out within a 48 hour period or sooner unless you have purchased custom-sized items too. All other items, unless otherwise noted, will be ready for delivery within a reasonable time period which allows me to custom-make your requested item(s). All other orders are subject to a 3 - 4 week production period (prior to shipping) unless other arrangements are made in advance. This time period is typically indicated on my shop's welcome message and is also shown at the bottom of each listing near the shipping cost. Please keep in mind that there is only one person custom-making your outfit(s) and making them with quality care, at that.
All items under 13 ounces will ship via USPS First Class mail. Anything over this weight will ship via USPS Priority Mail. If you need your order shipped via Priority Mail (2-3 business days) or Express Mail please contact me prior to ordering and a reserved listing will be set up with the upgraded shipping cost. If you are in the US, you will always receive a tracking notice when your order is ready to ship, via the email address you have entered in Etsy. If, for some reason, you don't receive this notice along with other email confirmations, you might want to double check your email address to see that these notices are not going to spam or that you have your address updated and correct.
Lost packages: Should an order get lost in the mail due to an error by the Postal Service it is NOT our responsibility to replace it. Insurance can be purchased separately if you choose to contact me with this request PRIOR to making your purchase. I have shipped many hundreds of packages with no known package loss incidents.

International orders are shipped via USPS First Class mail and tracking numbers are issued but are not tracked once they leave the United States.
Refunds and Exchanges
I aim to please and my goal is to make sure my customers are completely happy with their purchase. If, you are not pleased with your order or need a different size or style, you are welcome to contact me within 7 days of receipt to discuss an exchange of your item. Not all items will be accepted for return or exchange and this is dependent on the customization of the order and also the size of the outfits. Please be aware that any returns or exchanges will incur a 15 - 25% restocking fee in addition to additional postage cost of new item(s) requested unless, of course, the return is due to my own error. Please note that as all children are sized differently and all patterns are different, too, outfits are not guaranteed to fit perfectly (one of the risks taken with mail-order). If you order something in a rush for a special event you run the risk of being disappointed with the fit when you receive it, so PLEASE consider these things prior to ordering. All items to be returned must be in new, unwashed condition and free of any odors (pet, smoke, etc) with tag still attached and returned within 10 days of receiving your purchase. Buyer is responsible for any additional shipping charges and prior shipping charges are non-refundable. I will process the refund or exchange only after receiving the returned item(s) and verifying that they are acceptable to the terms stated above.

Thanks for your understanding!
Additional policies and FAQs
►► SIZING
I searched many different sources for some sort of general sizing that I could use as a guide. This is the best I could come up with, although I realize there are variances. My clothing is made with reference to these sizes, but you are more than welcome to submit your measurements for a custom fit for your child. This is APPROXIMATE sizing information:

AGE.......WEIGHT....HEIGHT....CHEST....WAIST
NB...........0 - 7 lb......up to 17"....15-1/2"....16-3/4"
0-3 m......7–12 lb.......17–23”......16-1/2”....17-3/4”
3-6 m.....12–17 lb......23–27”......17-3/4”....18-1/4”
6-12 m....17–22 lb.....27–29”.........19".......18-3/4”

10...........64–72 lb.....54-56”......27-1/4”.....25-1/4”

I use ONLY 100 percent cotton fabric, mostly from designer collections, in my items. Some shrinkage will most likely occur since I DO NOT prewash my fabrics unless otherwise noted.

CARE instructions for all my sewn goods: For best results - machine wash cold gentle cycle, tumble dry low or hang dry

ALL products are handmade in my completely smoke free and pet free sewing shop.

►► CUSTOM ORDERS - NEW PATTERNS
You are more than welcome to submit your own fabrics and patterns upon approval. My new pattern policy is that I will consider splitting the cost of the pattern with the buyer if I feel that it is a "do-able" pattern and not too complex and labor-intensive...i.e. something I might use in the future, too. In addition, there is a flat rate fee for "new patterns" due to the fact that they must be downloaded, printed, taped together and then traced for the size needed. Also, there is the time-consumption involved with learning a new pattern and all it's nuances. This fee ranges from $6 - $10 per pattern based on difficulty
