Doilies, Dollies and Dainty Delights...

I have a real soft spot for handmade kids clothing that blends nostalgic fabrics and ideas with modern patterns and designs. I recently had the pleasure of meeting a handmade designer who does just that; the lovely Caleena from Little People Clothing; a handmade label based in Sydney, NSW… long live the doily!

Handmade Dresses by Little People Clothing

Caleena started her label, Little People Clothing, after the birth of her first two children {she has since had another child, and has a fourth one on the way!} Prior to starting her family she had spent 15 years running a bridal couture business. She has a particular penchant for vintage finds which she then washes, dyes, irons and brings back to life with a little bit of T.L.C and a lot of imagination. How cute are the two little dresses above? My favourite is the Parisian dress {left}.

All of Caleena’s items are lovingly handmade in her cosy little studio. I was particularly inspired by the beauty of her workspace {see image below}. Surrounded by her little ones, who provide her with oodles of inspiration, Caleena creates hand-dyed doilies pieced together into fairytale dresses, upcycled woolen cardigans with vintage buttons and trims, super soft snugglies and dolls with hand embroidered faces… and so much more.
