It's not easy to make clothing that is perfectly vintage inspired but feels modern, but children's line Fleur + Dot has accomplished the task in lovely fashion. The collection of vintage-inspired, handmade clothing for modern kids ages 18 months to 8 years old incorporates timeless elements like Peter Pan collars, puff sleeves, and oversize bows, along with classic fabrics featuring florals, polka dots, and anchors. Somehow, however, the line makes everything feel fresh and new.
Portland-based designer Brianne Wallace wants each of her pieces to be heirloom quality and passed from mother to daughter or between sisters, so each piece is lovingly and carefully made. Wallace is also devoted to helping other women entrepreneurs; she sources most of her materials from local, women-owned businesses and donates a percentage of her profits to microloan organizations helping women's businesses. In short, it's beautiful kid's clothing you can feel good about buying on multiple levels! Keep clicking to check out some of Fleur + Dot's sweetest creations.
