Welcome to the home of Rue Violet! My turnaround is usually 1-2 days.

All of these items are made in and shipped from Noblesville, Indiana. I am happy to calculate actual shipping for multiple products to get you the best rate. Items are typically wrapped in pink tissue with a fun sticker, and packed in a white Tyvek envelope for First Class shipping. Larger/heavier orders are sent in new Priority boxes. I am happy to include a gift message for you, just let me know what you'd like. (I have white glossy gift boxes for mid sized items like nightgowns, lingerie sets, dresses).

Questions about size? I'll help you find the perfect fit. See http://rueviolet.com/size-chart-2016/ for my shop size chart.

I am open to selling my products at wholesale for your brick and mortar shop, just contact me.

See my other Etsy shop, Mercurious (cafritsch), for vintage patterns and sewing notions.

About

Costumes to Lingerie!

I spent 14 years working in professional theatres, mostly in the Midwest. I worked primarily as a draper (pattern maker), and for several years also as a floor supervisor...helping to create a smooth workflow in what can be a crazy paced environment. I had been trained in costume design, so did some of that for other organizations as well.

After getting more than a little burned out, I applied for and received a Creative Renewal Fellowship from our Arts Council, and experimented with fashion design. This gave me the courage to leave my theatre job and become an entrepreneur in 2007.

I mostly earn a living by working with other small businesses to help them create their products. This involves pattern making, sample making, product analysis and a lot of paperwork...but I love it. My own brand is a way for me to exercise my own creativity and design skills, which is why I created Sweet Revenge (now rebranded to Rue Violet) in 2010.

I'm still learning and developing the brand, and if nothing else it is a really great learning experience...

  • Cathy

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    With a background in costume design and technology, I had a 14 year career in professional theatre. I now make a living creating patterns and samples, and doing product development for other small businesses.

  • Moo

    Assistant

    Moo is not involved in the manufacturing (he's stuck at home), but he's in charge of Etsy sales when I am not available. He also supervises the crock pot while I am at work. I figure it's the least he can do.

  • Jessica

    Stitcher

    Jessica is a good friend of mine, whose "real" job is a costume draper at the Indiana Repertory Theatre. She contracts for me in the summer when the theatre is dark, and I have larger orders. She has a pit bull mix, and guinea pigs!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! I make almost everything to order, so in many cases I can make a color or fabric that is not listed in that specific listing. Depends what I have in my fabric stock at any given time. Just ask!

Sizing details

I have a size chart, but please also feel free to include your measurements with your order. More info always helps.

Care instructions

Almost every item lists the care/content in the description and on a label with the item. The sleep masks do not have care/content labels. They are machine or hand wash cold, air dry.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I ship every order with pink tissue and fun stickers. The shipping envelope is usually a plain white Tyvel envelope, unless it is in Priority packaging. I can add a gift card with a special message if you like!

Wholesale availability

I do offer some items at wholesale, please see my Etsy wholesale account!
