The Topknot Doll is a range of vintage baby clothing 100% handmade in Perth by talented and humble local mum Vanessa. Her beautiful designs are sweet and whimsical yet remain practical and affordable. They are made from high quality, durable, easy care cotton, organic cotton or denim fabric sourced in Australia. The clothes are expertly stitched and are sized accurately. The range includes rompers, playsuits, tunics, dresses, tops, shorts, bloomers, bandana bibs and of course, the inspiration behind the name - topknot headbands. The range is exclusively available for girls in sizes for newborn up to 2 years old.
As only high quality fabrics are used, the clothes are easy care and do not require delicate hand washing and will not shrink nor fade. However, Vanessa warns that items with snap buttons are soft and delicate and will melt if ironed over them. (This would never happen to me Ė I have never ironed any baby clothes and donít think I ever will!).
These adorable, unique designs would make a perfect gift for baby showers, newborns, birthdays, Christmas, christenings or any other special occasion. The entire range is affordably priced so you may want to buy for your own little one knowing you are purchasing an Australian product locally made in Perth. Items start at $6.99 and there is nothing priced over $20. Custom orders are available if you fall in love with a particular style but would prefer it in a different fabric or print.
Floral Playsuit with Topknot Headband
Even the packaging is vintage-inspired and beautiful! My item came wrapped in vintage brown paper and string with a beautiful lace card. My babyís sweet floral playsuit is soft to touch and features a striking ruffle neck. It came in a set with a topknot elastic headband which is a perfect feminine accessory for babies with little hair, or hair too fine for clips or bows. It is soft and does not have sequins or details that could scratch her delicate skin or fall off for her to possibly swallow. Every time she wears her outfit I receive comments on how cute and gorgeous she looks and I am questioned where I got it from!
Orders can be placed through Etsy, eBay or direct message via Facebook. Flat rate shipping is available for postage anywhere in Australia. Free shipping options are available for Perth buyers. For custom orders or bulk purchases, contact Vanessa through her Facebook page The Topknot Doll.
