About YouAreSmall

Sales 3,471
On Etsy since 2014

A small venture.

I set up You Are Small after the birth of my daughter Maud in 2013. I had made a few items of clothing her which people seemed to like so decided began with a few custom orders for friends and other mums I had recently met.

I have always had a love of pattern, colour and textiles and prior to being a mum worked supplying textiles to the film and Television industry and I had gained experience of dress making through working freelance as a costume designer for various opera productions.

Like many full time mums I missed certain aspects of work and so decided to set up You Are Small. I began making baby clothes, and as Maud has grown so has the range I now produce.
I want to make beautiful and unique clothing for small people which have a classic feel with a modern twist.
