My 3.5 year old daughter knows what she likes (and what she doesn’t like) when it comes fashion. This has caused a bit of a struggle when shopping or deciding on an outfit for the day. Well, with Fashion Playtes she can “design” what she is going to wear! Fashion Playtes offers “design your own clothing” for girls, ages 5-12. Girls can create their own designs online and have them shipped right to their door. Custom girls clothing options includes dresses, tops, loungewear, doll clothes and more.
We were very excited to try this new site out. Adeline is a little younger than the suggested age but she enjoyed the process and, with my help, was able to design her very own dress. It is so easy to do!
First step, pick your garment and color. Adeline chose a black t-shirt dress style. Next, choose your designs. Choose from graphics, appliques, rhinestones, letters and numbers. Adeline chose a brightly colored graphic featuring a hand displaying a peace sign. You can also choose ribbons, ruffles or under layers for your creation. Adeline decided to use a daisy ribbon along the bottom and a tie dye under-layer to complete the peace theme. How empowering for Adeline to have the final say! We also designed a personal label for “Adeline Designs” and placed the item in our cart.
Adeline’s personal creation totaled $46.50 which I think is a reasonable price for having your personal creation. A couple of days later we received and e-mail from Fashion Playtes letting us know that our design was being created. They also gave a brief description of the behind the scenes process. The processing time for each piece is 7-10 business days and once your order is shipped delivery for your custom garment is usually within 2 weeks. We were thrilled to receive our garment in less than 2 weeks! Adeline was so happy to see her own creation. Of course, she had to immediately wear it. Adeline happily shared all the information on her dress with anyone who asked! The dress we ordered is a size 6. Adeline normally wears a size 5 and measures about 44 inches the size 6 is a little bit long on her but she will grow into it very soon! I was very impressed with the quality of craftsmanship of the dress. Everything is tightly sewed with no loose seams or strings. The garment has been washed and dried a couple times and still looks brand new.
Fashion Playtes is the perfect way for girls to design their very own wardrobe. You can create looks and save them without purchasing them. They can store their designs and create their own brand and collections. This way you can always surprise you little fashionista with a design from their collection for birthday’s, good report cards or even “just because”. I have recommended this site to many of my friends who have daughters.
