Primrose & Pirates is a wonderful little Etsy store that I recently ran across while trying to find my son a fall coat. I love to purchase my kids handmade and made in the USA items. I have discovered that I would rather spend a few more bucks and get an item that is wonderfully handcrafted with love and as always I love to support my country. MADE IN THE USA IS THE WAY TO GO!
Let me introduce you to Kristen the shop owner:
"I am a wife and mother to three active kids, and I'm blessed to be able to stay at home with them during the day. I have always loved creating things. So when I was given a handmade dress for my 2-year-old daughter a little over a year ago I was immediately taken with how cute and unique it was--and with the idea that I could make an outfit for her myself. I hadn't sewn anything in several years, so I pulled out my sewing machine, found a pattern I thought I could muddle my way through, and bought some fabric. Turns out that the whole process of making a dress was so satisfying that I immediately made another one! I made her wear those two dresses all summer because I loved seeing her wear them and I liked them so much. What started as a project quickly became a passion. With encouragement from friends, I decided to make the plunge into selling the clothes I make. Choosing fabric, imagining what might be as I hold prints in my hand, and then seeing that vision become reality. . . I love it all! I sew in the afternoons while my kids are napping and in the evenings. My sewing machine lives in the family room, and the kids like to play with buttons and fabric scraps. They are the inspiration for most of the things I make. And they are mostly cooperative in testing outfits and trying things on for me. My daughter, now almost 4, often asks, "Is that a dress for me or are you going to sell it away to another girl?" She wishes they were all hers!" ~Kristen
Primrose & Pirates makes some really wonderful items let me show you! I know summer is over but I love these pillow case dresses even in the winter with a long sleeve shirt and some cute stocking! Somethings are just a year round goodness!
Now we all need a good fall jackets or vest. These are so cute!
Now onto a super cute little skirt. We love a cute dress or skirt year round with a leg warmer or stockings!
There is just so much cuteness that I almost forgot to show you the super adorable jacket we got to try. I love the flannel and corduroy. This jacket has wonderful little buttons no zipper! I LOVE THIS JACKET and we have gotten so many compliments on it. Everyone wants to know where to get one! This one is a KEEPER!
