Possibly the greatest irony of my work here at Studio Amanda Talley is that I am now nurturing the production of children's clothing. I LOVE CHILDREN'S CLOTHING! My mother was a partner in a children's boutique when I was young, but because I wore a school uniform for practically all of my own childhood, the only clothes I really remember choosing is the party dresses and sundresses we wore in the summertime.
As the mother of two girls, I did get to play dress up again, and my kids got to wear all of my dresses (carefully preserved by my mother) and their own...until they also started school and began wearing a uniform daily.
Now that they are in their teens, I suddenly have access to a workroom and pattern makers and as much fabric in Amanda's beautiful patterns as I could ever want, and I no longer have kids to dress.
The good news is that I'm still obsessed with kids clothing and now it's part of my job. Here are some of my current favorites from our 2016 collection!
