If you read this blog regularly, you know how much I LOVE to feature mom-made products.  Supporting other moms by buying handcrafted is the best feeling in the world, and I find myself making friends along the way, too!  Generally I meet these moms on sites like Etsy, where you can search for exactly what you need.  I didn’t actually meet RuthAnn of HaddyGrace Designs on Etsy, but she does have an Etsy store – http://haddygrace.etsy.com.  So how did we “meet”?  Why, through my blog!  And I’m so delighted to have been introduced to RuthAnn’s family (you can “meet” them, too, by reading this exclusive interview) and her clothing for girls and boys!

At HaddyGrace Designs, you’ll find super-sweet pillowcase dresses…

soft-soled fleece baby shoes for boys and girls…

handmade cloth diapers and slings,

and, my personal favorite, sweater dresses!

This one is modeled by my little girl, Emma:

A Mom’s Review

Thanks to RuthAnn, I was able to review one of her gorgeous sweater dresses, and I am in love.  I seriously wish they came in my size!  When I received it, I was impressed by the quality of the material (knit fleece) and the extreme softness of the dress.

It was a chilly day the day that it came in the mail, and I couldn’t wait to try it on Emma, so we did a test run immediately.  I was freezing, but Emma, with only the sweater dress, a pair of leggings, and some warm boots on, was completely fine!  I even felt her hands to make sure, and they were warm.  This dress is great for keeping little girls warm on cold days – and have you seen anything cuter?

And check out the applique detailing:

You can choose to have a dragonfly or mushroom added to any of her sweater dresses, and they come in various colors.  I chose blue because Emma looks so good in blue, and I wasn’t disappointed with the beautiful shade of blue knit fleece we received!

I’ve washed it twice and it has held up perfectly (I haven’t dried it in the dryer but it dries so fast naturally I didn’t feel the need).  I am SO thrilled with the fact that I can keep Emma in at least one dress all winter long that I plan on buying another one when she grows out of it.  At $32.00, how can I not?  It’s both a sweater and a dress in one, so completely worth it.  :)
