About mabelretro

Sales 11,622
On Etsy since 2009

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.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

Yes, we do offer wholesale. Send me a message and we can chat

My baby is in between sizes. What size should I order?

This is very easy to solve. Just send us your baby's height and weight measurements and we can customize sizing if needed or recommend the best option

Care instructions

All Mabel pieces are washer and dryer friendly. Care instructions are included on each individual garment for your reference.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Add a personalized note for no charge. Or, for $5 we will ribbon-ize and gift wrap for you with your personalized message if you choose to add one.

Sizing details

Please remember to use your baby's current measurements to compare to the size chart. The sizing chart is included in the photos of each listing. Not sure? Message us with baby's height and weight measurements and we can help you get the best size.

Can i have a different color bowtie with an outfit

Absolutely. Just let me know what color (if you have a picture that is even better) and i can dig around the rainbow that I have in the studio.

You're in Canada? How long does it take to ship from there?

We may be in Canada but we ship with US Post for all packages headed to the USA and internationally. So it takes time to make the item (see each individual listing for production time) and then your package is transferred over the border (yay for being in Vancouver!) by our logistics partner and then given to USPS. From there USPS is fast and reliable with the standard shipping taking just 3-4 days.
