Hello all,

I have decided to shut down both of my stores (ebay and etsy) for a little while. I will reopen them later this summer. I am doing this for me. I am in need of a much deserved break. I wear many hats (mom, wife, business owner, seamstress, accountant, etc.....)all of the time. It is time for me to put couple away for a little while. School is winding down and summer is quickly approaching. With that, I have lots to do to get ready for the kids. I am hoping to spend a few lazy days of summer just enjoying the beauty around me.

I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your business. Without you, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you.

I will be updating my blog throughout the next couple of months to let you know what is happening.

If you need to contact me, you can email me directly at lillifeeboutique@yahoo.com.

How are your a-line dresses sized?

A-line style dresses should hit your child at or slighty above the knee. These dresses are "A" shaped. Therefore, they do not "fit" your child. The best way to determine size for these dresses is with 1 simple measurement. Measure your child from shoulder to hem (knee). From this measurement, you should be able to determine which dress will fit best.

The sizes for a-line dresses are as follows:

6 Months 15”

12 Months 17”

2T 19”

3T 21”

4T 22”

5T 25”

6/6x 27”

How are your pillowcase dresses sized?

Pillowcase dresses are designed to be tea length (mid calf). This can be adjusted based on personal preference. Pillowcase dresses do not "fit" your child. They are intended to be full. Your child should be able to grow with this dress. Therefore, it can be worn for several seasons. Again, measure your child from shoulder to hem to determine correct size.

The sizes for pillowcase dresses are as follows:

6 Months 15”

12 Months 17”

18 Months 19”

2T 21”

3T 23”

4T 25”

5T 28”

6/6x 30”

Are your pillowcase dresses lined?

Gingham pillowcase dresses sized 3T and larger are lined. Gingham pillowcase dresses sized 6M, 12M, 18M and 24M are not lined. If you want them to be lined, there is an additional $5.00 charge.

All other pillowcase dresses are not lined. Again, if you would like a lining, please ask.

Can you make a dress larger than a size 6?

Yes. There is an additional charge for any dress larger than a size 6. If you are interested, please ask.

Can you pillowcase dresses be made top length?

Yes. Pillowcase dresses make cute tops for older girls. They are particularly cute on kids (tweens) between 8 - 11.

Can you make that pillowcase dress into an a-line dress?

Yes. Any of my pillowcase dresses can be made into an a-line dress. There is an additional charge.

Can you make that a-line dress into a pillowcase dress?

Most definitely.

Where can I find your font choices?

You can view font choices here: http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj222/lillifeeboutique2/ If you don't see something you like, just ask. I have many others.

Can you accommodate special requests?

I will do my best to accommodate special requests. Just ask.

Do you have any other embroidery designs?

I have 100's of embroidery designs. Are you looking for something in particular, just ask. I will be happy to work with you to create your special outfit.

What color fabrics do you have in stock?

I generally stock the following fabrics:

Gingham: blue, turquoise, black, orange, red, yellow, pink, hot pink, purple, brown, lime green, kelly green

Dots: hot pink, lime green, purple

Corduroy: red, light pink, apple green, black

Will you combine shipping?

Of course, I would be happy to combine shipping.

Do you make matching hair bows?

Yes. I can make a matching hair bow for an additional $5.00. These hair bows can be made on either an alligator clip or french clip.

Happy Friday!!!

Yea - This is my first post. I have been working hard on getting my blog ready. What do you think?

My name is Debbie. I am the owner, designer and sole seamstress for Lillifee Boutique. I sell my goods on Ebay (
http://stores.ebay.com/Lillifee-Boutique) and Etsy (http://www.lillifeeboutique.etsy.com/
). Please stop by and take a look around. I love to make children's clothing. Everything is made by me. I don't buy any premade blanks for my clothing. I start each and everyone of them with a bolt of fabric and some thread. All of my aline dresses and jon jons are fully lined. What this means for you is that only lining touches your children's skin. The embroidery backing is inside - nothing scratchy or itchy here.

I am in the process of phasing out my Ebay store. So please take a look at my Etsy store. I have much more to offer to you there. Hopefully someday, I will be able to open my own online store.

If you are looking for something in particular, please ask me. I love to create new items for my customers. I can make matching brother/sister outfits. I know how important this can be as I have 2 sons and 1 daughter. I love them to coordinate for special occasions.

Thanks for taking stopping by.
