From the CLASSROOM to the SEWING MACHINE and I'm thrilled to make these cute little dresses for your cute LITTLE GIRLS!

I'm a recently retired teacher. Grade 8, Special Ed Self-Contained & Inclusion Programs were my life for the past 35 years! Time to move out and let the next generation of educators take our places.... when it's time, it's TIME!!

But, what to do? What to do? In addition to teaching, I had also enjoyed the past 8 years as a Direct Sales, Silpada Designs Sterling Silver Jewelry Rep. however, they went out of business May, 2016.

With that door closing, a new one opened. I'd already made several of these little dresses as gifts-- loved by many! The answer was right there in front of me and my new world of Teresa's Little Girls' Dresses, LLC happened without looking back.

I sell occasionally at particular venues such as The Podunk Bluegrass Music 4 day festival held annually in CT, and other larger planned CT events, because I enjoy meeting people who stop by my display and delightedly choose that special gift for their own grandbabies or for an upcoming baby shower. Many have been known to purchase a 12 month of my wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY fabrics and it's kept for her 1st birthday.... and everyone else's--while she steals the show whenever it's worn!

However, more recently, my focus has been on making wholesale sales connections with very exclusive shops in CT towns such as in Essex, Middlefield, Meriden, and Mystic. My Rhode Island spot is in a wonderful store on Block Island. Open year round, and quite the summer tourist island place located right across from the ferry docks.

These little dresses are reversible, so the value of getting two dresses for the price of one is easy to realize. Also, each one comes with one matching hairband/bow. No extra charge!

The newest item that I offer is a boy's traditional looking boy tie. "....for her brother."
What a cute duo they'd make in that family portrait.

My 4 adorable little dollies-- are girls aged 5, 4, and 2 and our little man, age 2. They look cute when they wear their dresses and bow tie!

The two oldest are pictured with me on my business cards, logo stickers and all my signage. I LOVE them and LOVE that picture of us.

I'm enjoying retirement and so glad that I decided to do this. I've had many happy and repeat customers. By viewing my website (teresaslittlegirlsdresses.com) you can view all my fabrics
(I've lost count --and the amount changes periodically as fabrics come and go...but it's over 100 different prints.) If you see two that you'd like, use that contact form on my website to reach me. Then I'll get back to you right away to discuss ordering a custom-made one.

Thanks for spending time here reading. Hope you'll be a customer someday soon.

    I'm a retired teacher and this is my new life's LOVE. I named my business Teresa's Little Girls' Dresses because of my two oldest adorable granddaughters. My dresses are made with special care as if my own little ones would be wearing them!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I no longer offer this option. I sell only the ones pictured here in my shop.

Care instructions

I've already prewashed/preshrunk. Dresses that are RED, or that have a lot of RED color, however, should be washed alone, BEST PRACTICE, as many of us know that already ( from past laundry mishaps!)

Sizing details

Six sizes only:
6 mos, 12 mos, 18 mos, 2T, 3T, 4T

Do I make dresses with fabrics for Sports Teams, Disney characters, action figures, Charlie Brown, Grinch, etc?

No. Never. Sorry, only UNLICENSED high-quality fabrics. It's a legal thing.

Where do your fabric scraps go?

Proudly-- and honored to say: Paul Newman ( actor extraordinaire) founded a summer camp for seriously ill children in CT in 1988. A New Hampshire quilting group of passionate women makes the quilts for each camper's cot. At the end of their stay, the get to take it home. My scraps go into those quilts and I'm so pleased to be a part of this cause.

Do you make anything for boys? PLEASE??

Yes, finally. I now make Bow Ties for Little Guys. View the pictures. I can use any of my 100 fabric prints to make one just for him or to match one of my Teresa's Little Girls' Dresses.

Wholesale availability

Yes Hope to soon in 2018. I have a few contacts in the works.
