Handmade in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I create the patterns and designs with love and sew it all up just for you.

Inspired by retro clothing of the '20s to the '70s, my aim is to bring classic clothes that last. We aspire to be the opposite of fast fashion so that you can have pieces to cherish and keep.

Thank you so very much! My son looked super adorable in his baptismal outfit! He was comfortable and didn't fuss during the entire hour long ceremony! We received many compliments and everyone said they had never seen an outfit like his before 😄

About

It all started with a bad job and pinafore...

Have you ever had a boss that read your emails and took your client calls? Yeah.... I would come home at the end of the day so frustrated and the only way I could feel productive with my life was to sew.

One of the first things I made that was useful and loved was a white, cotton pinafore for my little cousin Charlotte. Apparently, she wore it everywhere.

When i happened on Etsy I knew that it was worth a try. My first products were baby shoes (these first shoes noone liked) and then bloomers. Nowadays, one baby boy later, I love to create cleanly designed clothing for girls AND boys.

Pet Peeve: defining gender with color, I think doing it with design and style are way better
Guilty Pleasure: putting baby to sleep so that I can work (isn't that horrible?)

    My grandmother was an amazing seamstress. I remember her tiny apartment packed with fabric, thread and yarn. She passed away before we could connect over a sewing machine but I know that my addiction to creating comes from her. That makes me smile.
