About

Hand made, just like Grandma would have done.

My sewing is the old fashioned sort - me, a needle, and the fabrics. I learned to sew from my mother and grandmothers as a small child, and have been sewing for almost 30 years.

All of my items are 100% hand sewn, using high quality fabrics, apparel quality fasteners and trims, and best quality threads, double strung and conditioned for durability, strength, and resistance to dry rot and mildew. I do use commercial patterns (I'm a Liberty Jane partner), but most of mine are either heavily adapted or made from scratch. I'm an improver - if I find a better way to do something, I'm going to use it. My goal is to make things that fit like they are real clothes - no choking necklines, no overly bulky arms and skirts, nothing that I wouldn't wear if I was 18" tall.

I do this as a passion, so I'm not selling cheaply made, disposable things. These clothes are for someone with refined tastes, someone that wants good things, things that if they were their size they would want to wear. That's not to say that they are delicate - except for fabrics that aren't washer friendly, all of it can be machine washed, and machine dried, although I recommend air drying if there is a lot of trim since lace isn't fond of the dryer.

I'm also a member of North Georgia Etsy Team NORGA

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    I'm an old fashioned girl, making clothes for your dolls the old fashioned way, all hand sewn. I'm a couture dressmaker to your dolls, not just making ready to wear basics! Everything I do is made to last, and with care in a smoke free studio.

Hello and welcome! I'm Mama Cassi, hand sewing in the time honored tradition of couture designers and making lovely garments to last. I don't believe that dolls need cheap fabric, Velcro and hot glue - I make every garment as if a tiny person was going to wear it, with careful attention to seaming, to hems, and to fasteners, as well as to making patterns that are usable, look nice, and fit well. Think of me as your doll's custom dressmaker, not just a lady selling doll clothes online.

All items are machine washable unless the fabrics aren't friendly to water - and I'll make sure I tell you that on the listing. All thread is double strung, conditioned against mildew and for strength, and all seams are finished, hems double turned for durability. I use hand sewn or hand set snaps, buttons, zippers, and hook and eye closures. If you have a special need (someone with hands that can't manage buttons or snaps) please let me know - I can always adjust the items to use elastic or some make other accommodations to allow everyone to enjoy dressing their doll.

Many items are custom made to order, but I add new items that are ready to ship all the time. If you see something that is ready to ship but you'd like it with changes, please send me a message - I can always make you another one, with customization.

I also am glad to take custom commissions, matching to existing outfits. Would your bridesmaid like a matching doll dress? Would your quinceanera girl like a matching dress? Perhaps a first communion? Favorite outfit? Holiday dress? School uniform? Just let me know, and we'll see what we can conceive together.

Cancelled custom orders must be cancelled within 2 business days, or the cost of the item can only be applied to other items in the shop (no refunds). If custom fabric is purchased, the cost of the fabric will be deducted from the store credit amount unless it is used on the replacement order.

Orders for ready to ship items can be refunded, minus postage charges if applicable, if returned within 7 days of your receipt in the same condition they were sent to you.
Shipping
All items are shipped USPS Priority mail, unless you request otherwise. I send items in flat rate boxes whenever possible - combining shipping is always an option! All items will have tracking.

I ship as soon as I can - items are completed daily, and shipped as they are completed. If you have a specific day you need items for, please let me know so I can ensure that your order arrives before it is needed.

In the unlikely event that items are damaged in transit, please notify me immediately and send photos of the damage - I will either instruct you to return the items for repair or will replace them.
Additional policies and FAQs
Multiple orders of the same garment, placed at the same time, will get a discount. This discount will vary based on the fabric chosen.

If you have fabric you'd like to use (the same fabric as an existing garment, or an older garment you want me to incorporate into a new doll outfit) I will also offer a discount, if you ship the fabric to me.

For custom patterns or matches to existing clothes (i.e. matching a child's dress) I will send photos for approval before mailing the item. Once you have approved the photos, no further changes can be made without additional charges.

If the outfit will be for a young child or someone with physical limitations, please let me know so that we can make alterations to the fasteners and pattern as needed - I can use Velcro instead of hook and eye fasteners, remove buttons, add ties or make buttons large for hands that need help.

I reserve the right to substitute fabrics of similar quality or better if fabric is unavailable. I also reserve the right to decline to use specific fabrics that may be unsuitable for the pattern selected - I will gladly work with you to find a suitable replacement.

All items are guaranteed free from defects under normal conditions - items abused will not be covered.
