The dress is so flattering, but on the same comfort level as pajamas! I am deeply impressed by the quality of handiwork, fabric and customer service. This is the best purchase I have made in a very long time! The seller even allowed me to combine the top of one dress with the skirt of another, and took into account my specific measurements - for no extra cost. WOW. I received so many compliments wearing this dress, it's my new favourite!

My wife and I really love the work Sue does for us. This is a well made, perfectly fitting top. I'm very sure we will be back again.

From the Prairie and Back

I grew up in a small town in North Dakota and was always encouraged to be creative. My mother taught me to sew when I was very young and I can remember helping her pick out little scraps to sew into the most fashionable doll clothes. I have always loved colors, patterns, and textures, so I naturally gravitated toward craft and design. I also really enjoy making things with my hands and the ability to sketch, draft, cut and sew up a design in a matter of hours!

My high school sweetheart and I (now married!) went to college in Boston, MA, opened up a clothing boutique in San Diego called Ellaina Boutique, and did a stint in the shoe industry in Portland, OR. We traveled the country gathering bits of creativity with each stop. My little family recently moved to Dayton, Ohio and I have the pleasure of working from home in my small one room studio, while also being able to spend quality time with my husband and my two sons. I design and draft all of my own patterns, do all the cutting, sewing, packaging, and shipping myself. I work mostly with stretch fabrics, like cotton and rayon jersey, because they are so versatile and washable! I order most of my large fabric rolls from Los Angeles and from other Etsy sellers when possible. I love what I do and am so happy to be sharing my designs with you :)

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

Yes, I sell wholesale! If you are a Boutique please contact me for details.

Care instructions

I pre-wash and dry all of my fabrics to minimize any shrinkage for you. Most of the fabrics I use are 95% cotton 5% lycra, which can be machine washed warm and tumble dry low. I sew care tags into all of my garments for you to reference.

Sizing details

Most Garments are Made To Order. Please allow 7-10 days for your item to be sewn. Included in each listing are standard size measurements, which are simply a guideline, if you would like to include your personal measurements in the notes to seller box during checkout, I will be sure to make you the best fit ~ if you have any questions feel free to ask :)

Gift wrapping and packaging

I wrap all orders in kraft tissue paper and tie it nicely with string. I use tear proof mailers for the smaller orders and USPS priority boxes for larger. I do my best to keep packaging minimal to avoid waste and reduce shipping costs.

Custom and personalized orders

Most items become custom, because I make most items as they are ordered and I always encourage you to include your measurements if possible.

Whether you purchase a Ready to Ship item or a Made to Order item, I will still gladly accept them back for exchanges or refunds. I certainly understand online shopping is tricky and I want you to be happy with your handmade garments :) I am always available to answer any questions, and help you with this process as best as I can!
