Welcome Changes plus my new Vintage Denim Ruffle dress

Hello!!! I just wanted to share some exciting new changes coming to Fleur L'enfant this year.  Oh, and a look at my new dress coming to my website soon.

Keeping the business small and keeping it FUN!  This year there are many positive changes coming to Fleur L'enfant.  With our children growing up so quickly and busier than ever with school, sports and friends, I have made the decision to scale back on my sewing to spend more time with them. 

When I started sewing children's clothing 11 years ago, I was sewing up one or two dresses a month, that gradually that increased more and more over the years.  I looked into manufacturing last year to keep up with demand.  After extensive research, I realized it would take too much time away from my family and they are growing up much too fast.  Growing my business had become more than a full-time job when my true passion is taking care of my growing family.

I am focusing on my family and my love for cooking, photography and decorating. I will blog from time to time some favorite recipes, decorating ideas, and of course, my handmade clothing. 

All of my listings will be readymade and handcrafted, not manufactured (some that have been in the works for months) but will no longer be taking custom orders. Some designs will be  one-of-a-kinds that I was inspired to make ~ just once, not a dozen times.  My mailing list subscribers will be the first  to know about new listings and sales so don't forget to join.

I am really thrilled to share these changes with you and excited about my new journey :)

okay, now, here a picture of the dress my little Emma will be modeling soon for my website......we have the sweetest match leggings too!  There will only be a very limited amount of these and they are finally finished which means they will ship out right away.  The trim is imported and GORGEOUS!  layers and layers of denim, trim and ruffled fabric. I spent lots of time on each and every one of these and hope you love them!  I designed new embroidered labels, see the little crown? Love crowns!

Thank you for always supporting me in my endeavors!  I have met so many talented and wonderful people!!!! 


  1. Oh I meant to tell you how much I loved that new little label, I of course took note of each and ever sweet detail in your garments. I feel so fortunate to own some of them and now to get to add another. I can completely relate to wanting more time with the family, the kids do grow so fast and I hope your able to sew when you want to and have the time to do it...I will always be here watching :) Mere

  2. Hi Mere!!!! You are just the sweetest ~ always and most supportive friend!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!! I am looking forward to keeping it as fun and stressfree as possible!!! xoxo

  3. Hi Andrea,

    Wishing you lots of special memories with your family. As a stay at home mom myself, it is so important to cherish the time we have with our children..... they grow up so fast and right before our eyes!

    I am thrilled to hear you will still be sewing. Your designs are so sweet and lovey!
