    The MamaStay Story

    That’s me on the left, on my first day of Kindergarten. I don’t remember my teacher, or the classroom, but I very fondly remember THAT DRESS. I had a slight obsession with the Annie movie, and my mom lovingly created that special dress for my big day. (Thanks, Mom!) Naturally, when my own daughter was ready for school, I NEEDED to sew my love into a fancy skirt to send her out into the big, big world. That’s her on the right, wearing her first twirl skirt. It was a huge hit!

    Around this time, amidst the pure bliss and exhaustion of adding a newborn to our family, my weekly yoga class kept me sane. (Mostly.) Every Thursday night I hesitated to walk out the door, but my incredibly supportive husband would encourage me with a simple, “Namaste.” Twisted by tiny three-year-old ears, it quickly became, “Mama, STAY!” and a new family joke.

    Now that life has settled (Mostly.) I’ve launched a new adventure that allows this mama to stay at home with her little ones a little longer. MamaStay skirts have personalities as unique and playful as the girls who wear them. Each skirt is sewn by me, with the same love and meticulous care as the very first one. As my children grow, I hope MamaStay will too.

    Wishing you peace, love, and play!

    Additional policies and FAQs
    Not sure which size? Snugly wrap a piece of string or ribbon around your twirler's waist - at the point where they prefer to wear their clothing. (Some kiddos pull their bottoms up to their belly button, some prefer low-riding just above their hips.) Then measure the string with a ruler. The elastic band should actually be 1-1.5 inches smaller than your measurement, so the elastic can stretch and grip. For length, measure from the waist to the point you'd like the skirt to fall.
