Mother-Daughter team decides to try something new...

We opened Cracking Good Crafts in October 2013 because we needed a creative outlet. By May 2014 we realized that the things we wanted to make were too broad for just one shop, so we decided on a laugh to open another one... and another one... and another one (you get the idea!). As of October 2014 we are up to 7 shops with plans to open more soon!

Check out our shops:
-For a peek inside our laboratory:
-For paper goods:
-For jewelry:
-For all kinds of craft supplies:

  • Caroline Lancaster

    Owner, Photographer, Shipper

    I'm primarily the day-to-day person behind the shop. I do the photography, handle any of your questions, and post to social media. My secondary role is as a creator. I also make your custom orders and ship your package out to you.

  • Gillian Lancaster

    Owner, Graphic Designer, Creator

    I'm the right brain creative butterfly. I create in whatever medium appeals to me that day, and I create the digital elements you see on the store and on social media. I built our website and maintain it. I also have a day job as a graphic designer.

Welcome to Party and Peasant Dresses, a custom and pre-made shop featuring our favorite kinds of girls dresses. We make everything ourselves and hand-finish all of our garments. We take the time to make your garment exactly as it should be. This shop is part of a group of 6 shops that we run, so please check the other ones out! If you are interested in a custom order or multiple items across our shops please contact us.

Returns & exchanges

See item details for return and exchange eligibility.


We currently accept Paypal and credit cards. We expect payment within 24 hours of your purchase. If you have neither paid nor made contact within 24 hours, we will consider the purchase to be abandoned. We only accept cancellations on items that have not yet been shipped. We do not accept cancellations on custom orders. We ship pre-made items as quickly as possible (sometimes within an hour!) so please take that into consideration before buying.

We reserve the right to change our minds at any point, but what you see written here is what we are using currently.


Our aim is to ship pre-made items to you as quickly as possible, but you will have to wait no longer than 2 business days. We hate waiting for the "Your item has shipped!" email as much as you do! If possible we ship on the same day as you place your order.

Custom orders typically take 2-3 weeks from the time of purchase to time of shipment, but added complications, such as custom-designed fabrics or changing the fabric used adds to that timeframe (typically an additional 2 weeks). After you order we will send you an email with a time estimate and another email once your order is ready to ship.

We take every precaution to make sure that your item arrives in excellent condition, but we cannot take responsibility for what happens during the shipping process.

All items are sent from the Philadelphia area, so it should take 1-3 days to ship to the East Coast, 2-4 days to the Midwest, and 3-7 days to the West Coast. If you would like faster shipping or extra shipping services (such as insurance or tracking), please contact us before placing an order so that we can set up those options for you before submitting your purchase. Please be aware that some extra shipping options will cost extra.

We are happy to ship internationally. For an accurate quote, please contact us. We will send you more detailed information once we have processed you purchase.

Additional policies and FAQs

If in doubt, please contact us. We are quite friendly and would rather answer your questions ahead of time than have you be disappointed once your item arrives.

All products are sent in ready-to-gift packaging, leaving a smile on your face even if you are giving our products to someone else. All packaging is eco-friendly and can be reused or recycled once opened.
