Announcement   Welcome to my closet!!!
A sense of whimsy, a love of colours and patterns, and one Grandma on a mission is the magic behind Kaleidoscopek Closet. Come in and find a design in the closet just for you..."

The items listed here are examples of some of the creations I have made in the past. It seems I rarely have anything listed for sale in the shop but I will take custom orders any time!!!

Whatever your fancy there is a design in the closet just for you!!!!!

They are even more addictive to wear than they are to make. My sweater coats can be made for any season. They are long, short, twirly, and oh so cozy. They are great for Grandmas who like to cuddle up and keep those chills away. They're all you need on those chilly spring or fall days. They'll even keep the chill off your back during summer nights by the bonfire. Best of all they are simple wash and wear!!!!

The sweaters are all made from upcycled knit sweaters and sometimes the odd super soft fleece. Or any other knits I find appropriate. It all depends on how warm you want them to be. Button closure seems to be popular but I also do zipper. There are a variety of hoods to choose from but they all frame the face and seem to be a hot topic!!!!! I do the muff pockets on the front but kleenex and small change pockets sometimes show up either on the inside or out. My daughter is "crazy" about pockets so this year I have incorporated hand pockets hidden in the folds of the material. You will find some sleeves have thumbholes. Others are bell shaped or just regular. Of course with custom you can have your choice of all of the above.

So if you think you might like to put in an order just message me and I can send you a list of information I will need in order to get the fit right. We can discuss all your preferences and if you see a coat on display that may be something you would like let me know and it will give me a better idea of what your looking for. Of course the end product will be a combination of what I think best suits what you want.

I am not a professional seamstress. Let's just get that out of the way up front :) Blame my daughters; it's all their fault! They coveted katwise's amazing creations (see her shop here on Etsy), but as she's not able to do custom work anymore, I got recruited. I made sweater coats for them and myself, and my twin granddaughters each have one and are begging for another!

These items don't have perfectly aligned seams or exactly straight cuts like manufactured clothing. They are good and sturdy though, and full of personality, just like me :)

This is so beautiful. Fits perfectly and the fabrics you chose are so soft. Thank you for making this beautiful coat, my daughter just adores it.

I received an excellent product from kaleidoscopekcloset :) It was shipped out quickly and arrived sooner than what was expected. It was an awesome Christmas gift for my girlfriend! It made her very happy! Many thanks Debbie ;)

The collection in my closet is all made from upcycled fleece and knit sweaters. Most (so far all) the items have zipper close in the front, and they all have amazing hoods! Pockets show up once in a while, but you can request them on custom orders. Thumbholes are rare, but again, your wish is my command :)

They are as addictive to wear as they are to make. My sweater coats are long, heavy, twirly, and oh so cozy. They are like wearing a blanket, and go fabulously under long wool coats to give you an extra layer in the winter. They're all you need on those chilly spring or fall days. They'll keep the chill off your back during summer nights by the bonfire.

My sweater hoodies are short, fitted, funky, and still oh so cozy! They are perfect with jeans or khakis, when you want a little punch of colour and pattern.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Other Method
Payment
Payment is due upon purchase of the listing, whether it be custom or stock. For custom items, please convo me and I will set up a custom listing for you. Once the listing is purchased and payment received, I will begin your custom creation.

I accept Paypal payments only, and payment must be made in full (sorry!)
Shipping
Shipping is done by the most economical means possible, and I don't add handling charges. I recycle shipping materials whenever possible, and use the smallest package I can. Unfortunately Canadian shipping charges are usually higher than shipping within the U.S. If your actual shipping charges come out less than what you paid in the listing, I will refund you the difference.

If you need your item sooner than regular mail from Canada to wherever you are (which is usually a couple of weeks), please convo me so I can set up a custom listing for you with adjusted shipping costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds will be given under certain circumstances. Very innaccurate fit or errors in the sewing are acceptable reasons. That being said, I am not a professional seamstress; these items are upcycled and one of a kind, with a lot of character. Please don't expect perfectly aligned seams or exact sized patterns as you would with commercially made clothing.

You must ship the item back within one week of purchasing it, and it must be unworn.

You will be refunded the purchase price of your item (I cannot refund shipping and handling).
Additional policies and FAQs
I would love to take your custom orders! They will be subject to my availability, so please be prepared to wait for your colours to be collected and assembled. Due to the nature of the item, you may choose the main colours (specify whether you'd like dark, bright or pastel shades of your colours), the basic design (sweater coat or sweater hoodie), the type of hood (short, rounded, long and pointy), and reversed or regular seams. The fabrics and patterns will be chosen by me, but rest assured that whichever you choose, you'll get the best I can find. I love cozy sweaters, so I try to get the softest fabrics I can, especially for the sleeves.
