postheadericon Pleated and Cuffed Giveaway



 Pleated and Cuffed  etsy shop opened earlier this year (in February 2012). They offer sleeveless pleated collar A-line dresses in a variety of striped seersuckers and complimentary collar and monogram colors. They  also offer boys cuffed seersucker shorts to coordinate with the dresses. These are the perfect outfits for summer and wonderful for beach pictures!

The owner grew up with a mother who sewed cute dresses for her family, and her mother who had done the same. Her grandmother (her dad's mother) was an excellent seamstress in her day (making wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses from photos, no patterns, and altering clothing for hundreds of families in her region) but she did NOT have the patience to teach anyone to sew. The owner and her husband celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary this year. Shortly after they were married, she decided she wanted to learn to sew - so she did what any good college graduate with a degree in math & biology would do - she bought a book and read it. She started sewing by making a quilt top - she assumed it would be the simplest item to start with - straight lines, triangles and squares - it's simple and ALL math. In spite of love for math and science, she has always been the more "artistic" one in her family - willing to try a new craft, make a new project, anything creative! So the quilt top turned into bags which turned into clothing and she has never looked back. 

She and her husband built their dream home about 8 years ago - doing most of the work themselves. She made every curtain in my home for 30 windows. Shortly after they finished and were settling in, they were expecting their oldest son - Ian (6.5). Of course, she had to make things for him - burp cloths, bibs, paci clips, diaper bags, jon jons. Then friends started asking her to make things for their children or for gifts for baby showers or birthday parties. That is when  Pleated and Cuffed  was born . When her son Aidan (3.5) was born she  made  burp cloths for every season, bibs for each occassion, diaper bags to coordinate with his nursery, super cute jon jons, pouch slings to tote him around. . For the last 3 years, she has really been busy with orders from friends and friends of friends. Word of mouth really is great! She never thought she would have so much interest in what she makes for her own children, but strangers kept approaching her asking where she purchased their clothes. Looking back at the things she made 10 years ago, she giggles at how simple and not well designed her first projects were - but each project helped her learn something to improve the next project. 







Pleated and Cuffed sent Sagey this AMAZING dress! I am in love! The dress is made out of seersucker fabric (my favorite in the summer)! The neck features an amazing pleated collar! The neck of the dress is elastic so you do not have to worry about fighting your child to put the dress on. I think this dress looks wonderful on Sagey! The quality of the work is amazing. I can tell a lot of hard work went into making this dress. I can't wait to take pictures of her on the beach wearing this amazing creation!
