Your story in one sentence.

Welcome to The Painted Daisy!

I’m Jenny and I created this business in 2008 after realizing that my career as a human resources professional was not offering enough life balance. I had been sewing for recreation and extra income since I was in my teens, but never considered it as a full-time occupation. With the support of my spouse and kids I decided to do a 180 in my career, ditch the suits & heels and park myself in front of my sewing machine full-time!

I love sewing, textiles and vintage anything, so I combined those loves into this venture and starting creating clothing and accessories that are fun, different, whimsical, affordable and eco-friendly. I try to keep my “new” fabric purchases to 25% or less of the materials I use each year.

When I start to feel stir crazy locked in my home sewing studio I break free and spend time sewing for a local upholsterer. Making furniture is a whole different creative outlet that I love!

I can’t thank my family and friends enough for all your support! Many are featured in my listings - the beautiful real-life models that I admire in my life.

Payment is due upon purchase. I accept credit card purchase via Etsy checkout, as well as paypal, which allows you to purchase via bank account debit, paypal balance or credit card on file.
I ship USPS and offer several options - customers pick from those options. USPS offers a standard $50 insurance with Priority shipping - the other methods do not have any coverage for items lost in transit.

I am trying to live an eco-conscious and earth friendly life. Therefore, I try to recycle shipping boxes whenever possible and I don't use any extra tissue paper or packaging such as zip top plastic bags unless absolutely necessary. If my product is not machine washable I will always protect it with plastic inside the package. Also, if your package will be exposed to the elements please let me know and I will take extra precautions to protect it. Thanks for your understanding!

Custom orders or modified orders are not returnable unless discussed in advance. This DOES NOT include minor hemline changes of my Frances Skirts and Jersey Skirts, OR minor arm length changes to sweaters. See my refund policy for more information.

My shop is smoke-free. I have two dogs that share my home, They are not welcome in my sewing studio and I do my best not to pass on any of their lovely furry bits when packing/shipping purchases!

If you have a serious pet dander allergy, please let me know in advance and I will run your item through the dryer (on fluff) to make sure every possible bit of pet fuzzy is removed prior to shipping. This is the best I can do. If you have more concerns either convo me in advance or do not make a purchase.
