Spooky Laundry Collection

I just announced my new SPOOKY LAUNDRY collection! I'm so excited because I found the cutest Halloween Fabric EVER.  I know it may seem early for Halloween shopping, but remember I need time to make your orders and you want to receive them in plenty of time for your little cuties to wear them a bunch of times, right?  Of course! 

To kick off the new collection, I created a little giveaway over on my Facebook page to win a free dress or top for Halloween. We had a fabulous turnout and today we're excited to announce our winner! 

Woohoo!  I can't wait to get Luci's custom dress made for her little cutie! And it sounds like it will be shipped all the way to Germany for her granddaughter! I love that.  

It's too late to win an outfit from the Spooky Laundry Collection, but there is still plenty of time to pre-order!  Just look at this amazing fabric: 

How cute is that?!  I have some really fun coordinates to use like polka dots and chevrons in black/white and those bright colors. I'm having so much fun with this!  And so is my daughter: 

This Spooky Laundry Halter can come in dress length or top length (shown above) and I'd be happy to mix it up in any way you'd like to customize.  I can also make ANY of my shop styles using this fabric (it would make a really cute skirt or ruffly peasant dress)  so please email me your ideas at and we'll get your order started!  I will also be making some ready-to-ship outfits in my spare time that will be available for purchase on my  Polka Dot Umbrella Facebook Page.  These outfits are way too much fun for you to pass up!  Order today before I run out of supplies!

Jaclyn's Layered Jumper Dress

Fall is in the air!  Can you feel it? We live in a farming community (as you can probably guess from the photo above) so harvest is a big deal to us.  It also means back-to-school and more time indoors for our little ones.  We still want to dress them up cute of course, and Jaclyn's Jumper Dress is just perfect for the fall weather! 

I would love to make a jumper dress for your little girl!  It features front-snap straps in a unique design, that really cute bow pocket, inseam pockets (perfect place to put all her treasures), and a comfy fit that still lets her run and play. The white dress underneath is the layering peasant dress and it provides great coverage while also serving as a slip/petti.  My daughter wears her underdress under all of her strappy dresses because she loves it so much. 

If you would like to custom order a handmade jumper dress in any fabric that you choose, please email me at and we'll get your order started!  My daughter has requested several more and I can't wait to get started on the one in owl prints.
