About knittedswimsuit

Sales 1,677
On Etsy since 2013

Have your kids ever woken up on a Tuesday with an urge to be a train driver or Red Riding Hood?

If you know anyone between the ages of 3 - 7 who could answer yes to the above question...
then this is the kids costume shop for you.

We live in Nottingham, where men wear green tights and accessorize with bows and arrows. But I suspect that even Robin Hood fancied trying out another day job. If only he'd had a superhero cape.

Sharing a compulsive urge to sew, knit, crochet and make, make, make (but strangely making dinner doesn't count) we needed an outlet and Knitted Swimsuit was born (named after the least practical, most comical piece of clothing ever created.)

Sometimes our dress up costumes are inspired by story books. Authors like Shirley Hughes and Julia Donaldson and stories such as Little House on the Prairie and Red Riding Hood have all set us thinking. Viva World Book Day ! Sometimes costumes are inspired by our boys (we have 5 in our 2 families) like the train driver's outfit and sometimes there's a practical reason...you need a cape to wear while you collect blackberries, of course.

We hope that the little people who come to own our costumes can weave them into their own story and have many happy moments just trying out being someone else. Today I'm going to be......
