We all know that children’s clothes are really put through the mill. Young kids delight in getting their clothes filthy and playing outside, and so their clothes are subjected to some harsh treatment and frequent washing.
Yet sometimes, it is great to splash out on something special for the kids, and buy them handmade children’s clothing. Yes, it is more expensive than mass-produced clothes, but for special occasions and treats, there is nothing classier than something which has been carefully made by hand.
With many clothes available today, they are starting to fade or the stitches loosen after a few thorough washes, but hand-made clothes are usually of a far better quality. The material has been selected with care so that it does not fade and the design is such that it does not go out of fashion.
The quality of finish is so much better on a hand-made garment and it does not start to show signs of wear and tear after a few times in the washing machine. I could not afford to buy handmade clothes every day but just sometimes, I love to treat my kids to a high quality garment which they will hopefully be able to pass on to their children. I still feel nostalgic when I dress my son in clothes that I wore as a kid!
