welcome friends!

Thank you for visiting my new blog. mack & mae is a new venture of mine that I have been working on since June of this year. I have been creating stylish, functional, and comfortable clothing for children utilizing my 30+ years of sewing experience and the insightful design input of my daughters. In Tallahassee, items are on display and available for purchase at Textures Handmade Market (please visit the link in the righthand column of this blog). I am also taking custom orders if you need a special size, etc. (pictured at right above is an a-line jumper in pink "mommy toile" with a cute ruffle at the bottom).

I really love vintage fabrics, so many of the dresses and sets you will see at Textures are either made from vintage or vintage-inspired materials and some of the styles are reminiscent of vintage children's wear as well. Besides clothing, I have also been selling flannel nap blankets as well as buggy blankets (which are smaller but heavier and great for outdoor use). Most items are done in very limited quantities, so you are sure to have a unique outfit for your child or as a very special gift.

If you are shopping for girls, I have cute a-line dresses with a ruffle sleeve/strap, a-line jumper dresses, shoulder tie dresses, wrap dresses, top and pant sets, and plain pants great for lounging about. Many of the girls' styles transition nicely into fall when worn over a blouse or turtleneck - if it would ever get cool here! (at right is a wrap top and ruffle pant set).

For the boys, I have very cute shorts and pants. Sorry fellas...I am working on new styles for boys.
