One of my blogging goals for this year is to share my favorite companies, brands, and products with my readers. Today’s spotlight is turned on Marie Madeline Studio – a company that I have absolutely fallen in love with, as I’m sure many of you will as well.
As many of you know, I’m not a huge fan of excessive “stuff.” I’d much rather have a few things that I really love than a large conglomeration of ordinary things that are just okay. This philosophy definitely extends to my closet as well. Maybe it was 12 years of Catholic grade school and high school…or maybe it was twelve years of wearing the same brown plaid skirt every single day for school. Regardless of the reason, I like having a limited wardrobe to choose from.
That being said, I like to choose clothing items that are versatile, high-quality, and of course, fashionable! So, needless to say, when I came across Marie Madeline Studio, it only took a few minutes of browsing through their site before I was completely hooked.
If you’re unfamiliar with Marie Madeline Studio, they offer an exclusive line of sewing patterns as well as handcrafted custom clothing items. They feature girls’ and women’s clothing as well as messenger bags, purses, and quilts.
As a self-proclaimed train wreck when it comes to anything involving a needle and thread (seriously, I struggle to sew on buttons!), I love that everything is custom made at Marie Madeline Studio. Once you’ve chosen the item that you’d like to have made, you can then leisurely browse through the wide selection of fabrics that are available. Whether you love denim, spots, stripes, flowers, or geometric designs, the fabric selection at Marie Madeline Studio literally has you covered!
Shortly before Christmas, I had the opportunity to order a skirt from Marie Madeline Studio. I spent over an hour just looking through their designs and the fabrics, trying to decide what to choose. In the end, I settled on an ankle length street fair skirt. I chose denim for the fabric so it would be versatile to wear throughout the year with a variety of shirts and sweaters. Since I wasn’t sure exactly what size I would need, I definitely appreciated the size guide that is included on the site. It made selecting a size quick and easy – and was very accurate as well.
Once the skirt arrived, I was more than pleased with both the quality and the design. It is very well made and can easily be worn in the winter with clogs and a sweater (boots would be cute, too – I just don’t happen to own any at the moment!) or in the summer with my favorite foot apparel…flip flops! I have several events coming up this spring that will require fancier attire than I typically wear on a day-to-day basis, and I know I’ll be shopping at Marie Madeline Studio to find that perfect skirt for the occasion.
If you possess the talent of sewing (by the way, I’m really impressed), then you’ll want to check out the two promotions that are currently available at Marie Madeline Studio. First off, their Valentine Rose fabric collection is on sale for 35% off through January 24th. Or if you order $65 or more worth of items from the Marie Madeline Studio site, you’ll receive a one gallon scrap bag (which is valued at $14.50) for free. This promotion is valid until January 21st.
