Little Ticket Dresses

il_570xN.250005381.jpg

Recently discovered on Etsy, these jolly dresses from Little Ticket. Each garment is lovingly hand sewn by Renee Sisterson, a work-at-home Mom from Minneapolis. As a little girl, Renee learned to sew from her grandmother, but she got really hooked 4 years ago after her son requested a race car driver costume for Halloween.

Renee loves retro patterns, especially those from the 50s as well as the 60s and 70s. I love how she combines these classic kid styles with bold colors and lively Scandinavian designs. Bright, original and fun, these dresses are perfect for little girls and their stylish Moms. Renee's aprons are great too!

Wild Things dresses

Wild Things dress

For reasons totally unrelated to Babygadget, I recently embarked on a massive Etsy trawl - you know, the kind where you just can't stop following links, and then checking what that seller lists as their favourites, and then that seller... and before you know it, oops, it's way past bedtime.

During this frenzy, I did not find what I was looking for. But I did come across the UK store Wild Things, which makes stunning dresses for girls - like the one above, in Kokka fabric (£28.00 plus £3.50 shipping to USA). Definitely worth the hours of browsing time.

Sweetheart knits

sweetheart-knits

These pullovers from Sweetheart knits look like the kind of garments my parents' generation would have worn, when they were kids. Homemade, irregular, and none the worse for that.

They come in several designs: pirate, rocket, robot, owl, moon frog, (moon frog?), scottie dog and car - so there's something to please everyone, and particularly those of the small boy variety. £25.00 apiece.

The Marin Store is a site associated with the Marin magazine, selling goods made by local northern California folk. It's bursting with lovely stuff for the home and for adults, but the kids' section really yields some gems.

Here are a few of my favourite pieces: top to bottom, Lunch bucket, $30; Kennedy skirt, $38; Apron dress in Pop Daisy, $61.

Mummy Moon

I'm loving the unusual shapes, high necklines and muted colour palette of Lituanian company Mummy Moon. There aren't many outlets yet, but they are on Etsy.

Cookies! from Bobo Choses

Have you seen the Cookie Monster cupcakes tutorial that's been all over Pinterest and Instagram? One of my daughter's very best friends is obsessed with the Cookie Monster and we had a go at making them for her birthday last week. They went down a storm.

If only we'd seen the Cookies playsuit from Bobo Choses, we could have given her the perfect party outfit, too! For younger ones there's a onesie and a felt rattle, too.

It's not all cookie mania at Bobo Choses, though. My absolute favourite piece is the harlequin dress, above. So stylish. You can find a list of Bobo Choses suppliers on this PDF.

Admittedly, there are an awful lot of sweet booties all over Etsy, but MyBabyAndCompany does stick out as having particularly lovely ones. Whether your taste runs to bright or muted, there's a fabric choice that's right up your alley. Prices range from $17-20.

Katvig jumpsuit

katvig-jumpsuit

When all-in-ones came back in for adults, I knew that was one fashion I could safely skip. On the other hand, they're kind of perfect for little girls and their straight-up-and-down figures.

Leave it to Katvig to combine a simple shape and the perfect stripes: very practical for a summer spent roller skating, disco dancing, and discovering mum's old copy of Grease.

Fast Food bra

boob-bra

Frankly, any injection of humour into the sometimes fraught area of breastfeeding is all right by me, so the Fast Food bra by Boob Design is off to a good start.

I also like that it's one of the new wave of maternity bras that doesn't condemn you to beige, white or black. Looks awful comfortable, too, with support that's gentle rather than full-on.

GBP £45.00, and they deliver anywhere within the EU.

Solillas - ethical Balearic sandals

solilla

Those who holiday in Spain often bring back shoes - the country is famous for them.

Do you ever wonder whether your souvenir is truly authentic, though? Nothing makes the heart sink faster than finding the "made in China" sticker on the sole of your new souvenir.

Solillas caught my eye at first because of their simplicity and seeming sturdiness. So it's good to discover that the company also has strong principles, of employing local craftsmen, using natural, local materials, and prioritising quality over quantity.

And how many companies do you know where siestas are compulsory? OK, yeah, Google. But it probably learned from the Balearics.

You know what? If I can't be well-slept myself, I kind of want shoes made by well-slept people. Solillas make shoes for kids and toddlers (as well as adults): the children's fit is as above, and comes in five vibrant colours. You can see the more stolid toddler shoe below; colours are gentler.
