Hello and thank you for wanting to know more about my store, VESTMENTS.

This is the adventurous, freedom-loving big sister shop to my LullabyLily 'handknits that comfort' toys and classic, natural babywear shop at

VESTMENTS is my place to let loose with unique and exceptional designs for children.

I hope you enjoy looking at them - perhaps on your child - as much as I love to make them. While I've noticed that children like to have clothes and toys similar if not the same to those of their friends to feel part of a group, they also take enormous pleasure from having something they know no-one else has - something as unique as themselves and as special as they are. Something created just for them. So it is my hope that a 'VESTMENT' will give your child that lovely feeling - and the joy of expressing their individuality.

Each 'vestment' creates itself. I often wonder if I am actually creating a garment for a child I don't know and that their parent is going to buy it but none of us know that yet!

I find that often the idea I started with before casting on morphs into a whole other something depending on whether or not I run out of a particular yarn or suddenly remember a stitch that would work well or another yarn that I have in my yarn stash that will complement beautifully.

There is never a possibility of having a replica or duplicate of a vestment garment because I do not keep a note of the pattern as I am creating it. There is something pure and gloriously creative about that.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I want everyone who buys a VESTMENTS garment to feel really good about it. So if for any reason you want to return it and receive your money back, I will happily do that whether you decide it's not quite what you wanted or simply doesn't fit. I realise sizing can be a really tricky issue with children's clothes, hence my detailing of garment measurements.
I'm in Scotland, UK so can only accept payment via Paypal, but it's very easy if that suits you.

I will ship Royal Mail first class. International post is fairly cheap these days, secure and fast too. If, after I've taken your item to the Post Office, it turns out you paid too much in postage, I will refund the difference right away via Paypal.
If you're in a different country you may possibly have to pay customs fees, though this is extremely unlikely. All VESTMENTS garments are free from Customs/Ministry of Agriculture red-alert hot-tickets like leather, natural grasses, seeds etc so you don't have to worry about that. (Which is a bit of a shame because leather thonging can look so great on children's clothes!)
Additional policies and FAQs
I am open to custom orders and would be happy to receive a brief from you on your child's likes and dislikes, size and yarns you like to create a one-off garment from them.

You also have the option of buying some of the completely gorgeous yarns available on Etsy, sending it to me and having me knit a garment for your child.

Share the love.
