Featured Designer: Ivy Designs

Inspired by, designed for and "road-tested" by little people, Australian-based clothing label Ivy Designs caters to children ages newborn to six years. Developed by two sisters from Sydney with a passion for fashion and love for their children, Ivy Designs offers simple, modern clothing with a retro and vintage feel.

Where you'll see the difference is in the quality and presentation of their clothing. Not only are the designs super stylish, but they have been hand-made using high-quality natural fabrics like the ranges from Free Spirit, Moda, and Liberty of London. Designed for durability, Ivy Designs uses the services of a professional pattern maker, ensuring their clothes will fit your little one comfortably and properly.

You will stop in your tracks when you see the beauty of the Flutterby Skirt Set, available in either teal or pink. We love the teal and brown coordinating fabrics, which pair the butterfly and bug designs with a striking butterfly applique. And even if your little girl will only wear pink - it's berry-inspired color tones ensure she'll stand out on the playground.

Ivy Designs also offers many hand-crafted hair accessories to match many of their outfits. The attention to detail combined with rich hues, patterns, and textures - make this "hair candy" a must. Check out our favorite, the Evergreen Dots hair/clip and tie set.

Customer favorites at Ivy Designs include the Amelia Crochet Sleeve Top, Chelsea Dresses, and Bloom Tunics (pictured above).
