real clothes for real kids

sweet isabella makes her modeling debut.
she just turned three.

apparently she loved the blue dress so much, she insisted on sleeping in it.
family dog harley had to get in on the photoshoot.

i've been hard at work the past couple of weeks, scaling patterns, cutting out and sewing up a storm and now i'm ready to present my reversible organic cotton dresses in three sizes - 3 (100cm), 5 (110 cm), and 7 (125cm). if you're in denmark or scandinavia and would like to buy in danish kroner, they're in my beecharmer shop (more listings to come, as i had some hiccups on the back end). if you're anywhere else, you'll find them on big cartel in US$ - the price is the same both places (according to the exchange rates yesterday on XE).  they will also be available locally in a lovely little toy shop that also has children's clothing.  there are seven different color combinations and two designs (one two-tone and one with pockets). i have some of each size, but will also make them up as they are ordered once my stock runs out, so please allow up to a week.

the fabrics i've used are the gorgeous nature walk and cut out & keep (by heather moore) lines by cloud9. if you would like another combination other than the ones i've put together, just email me - i'm happy to make up these dresses just as you want them. they're comfortable, soft and fully reversible, so they're two dresses in one. and with a long-sleeved shirt and some tights, they're perfect for any weather.

i hope you like them!  happy weekend, one and all!

Totally cute! But, unfortunately, I don't think any of my boys would wear them. :(

Your lovely little dresses show just how well a simple pattern will showcase beautiful fabrics and particularly a kid-friendly style. Your model and her dog are perfect. Your photo's are catalog worthy. Best of luck with this adventure, you dun good girl!

She is adorable!!! And I love the dresses. I have a little boy, but they make me want to have a little girl too. Any chance you'll make dresses for adults?
