The Measure Designs

The Measure dresses have arrived!  Oh my gosh the wait was certainly worth it!  They are devine.

These are truly statements pieces.  Team them up with merino and knits for winter and then wear with light weight cottons in summer.

I just love clothing ranges that will get passed down, although I can quite imagine, these will be put away for when your daughter grows older as keepsake pieces.  (I am thinking about getting the pinafore framed!)

About The Measure

I believe in little joys and hidden exultations. I believe in climbing trees as much as possible. I believe the ocean is more exhilarating than the Taj Mahal. I believe in the transformative power of clothing, and I strive to give you special pieces you and your daughter will cherish and hold dear.
I try to create clothes that are suitable for playing in the yard as well as visiting grandparents, clothes that walk a fine line between modern and vintage, and will be wearable for years. Most of my dresses are built to grow with your child, becoming a tunic and later a top as they grow taller. Comfort is never sacrificed for unique detailing.

Striving for sustainability, many of my dresses are made with 100% upcycled, repurposed men's button-up shirts. Always offered in colors that are easy to find (white, blue, white and blue stripe, grey, black, and off-white) they are also available in any print an Oxford is made in, depending on the availability in my inventory. I would love to take a treasured piece of Dad, Granddad, or Brother's clothing and transform it into a special heirloom for your little miss, one both you and she will treasure.


  1. Oh wow, I just love the wee pinafore and the frills underneath... totally LUSH!

  2. They are just divine aren't they!
