Have you ever thought about what it actually means to "buy local"? One of my priorities with Free Babes has always been to employ local seamstresses—most of whom are mamas just like you, trying to support their families.
When choosing clothes for my little girls, I try to buy exclusively from shops that make the effort to produce their clothing in the United States. It may mean spending a little more, but it's worth it. Kids clothes that look good and also make you feel good. The perfect excuse to buy your little girl something nice.

I thought it would be fun to do a round-up of my favorite dresses from American-made stores. The perfect way to outfit your adventurous little goes for the end of summer. Check out these from Mabo Kids, Alice and Ames, Soor Ploom, and Wolfe Child.
Hope you love these dresses, mamas!
Be Brave, Hillary
We are so honored to be able to collaborate with fine artist Kelly Ventura on this beautiful collection. I have long been a fan of Kelly's colorful work, so it was an absolute dream to have her create two custom watercolor prints we would then turn into Wunderkin Co. bows for the adventurous free spirit.
We are so excited to be collaborating on our second collaborative collection with fashion designer and blogger, Rachel Parcell. The bows in the collection were inspired by Rachel's elegant and feminine style, as well as the the beautiful bond between her and her adorable daughter Isla.
