Blousjurk is keurig gemaakt volgens de aanwijzingen, snel geleverd. Het is mooie stof, goed afgewerkt. De kleine drukkertjes vind ik niet zo mooi, liever een slag groter. Op dit moment heb ik de blousjurk aan, hij zit heerlijk

Clever custom clothing

My passion for making clothes started late in life; I began a study in fashion and design when I was already eighteen. Untill then I hadn’t even touched a sewingmachine. After finishing my degree a couple of years back, my life took a different turn, but now – due to Etsy – my love for making inspiring handmade clothes for special people has flourished once again.

In the daytime (and a lot of nighttimes as well ...) I work as a theatre programmer for the local theatre in my hometown Nijmegen. So I spend a lot of time sitting on my but, watching performances and for me it's a perfect godsend combining this daytime job with being creative myself. Most of the time that's left I dedicate to making clothes for Bilot in my small, but cosy homestudio.

I love creating items that might seem casual at first sight, but stand out due to a small nimble touch. My style is minimalistic and clever; I combine basic colors with neon accents and spice up simple patterns with filled up shoulders, cuffs and kneepads. The pieces stand out by their unique details in combination with comfort and sound finishing touch.

I like to think of bilot as a modest countermovement in fashion today. Instead of fast-fahion-consumption I offer a different take on clothing. Why not opt for the sustainable way of doing things? Buy less and more handmade. So you can be sure your darling dress has been made under good conditions, with passion and care.

Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders

All items are custom made in the standard sizes and colors available.

When these standard options don't work for you, please feel free to convo me for other possibilities. Usually there are a lot more options in size, fabric and color than the ones you can choose from in the shop.

You can also contact me for a more open question such as: 'My friend is getting married soon and I'm looking for a one of a kind dress to wear'. I'll make you suggestions for models and fabrics and together we'll decide on a design and matching fabric. In the end I'll make you a total price and inform you about the processing time. These type of custom orders can usually be ready within two weeks.
