The chance to design my own clothes…for under $20? I love the idea! Fashion Playtes have come up with a really cute idea for little fashionistas to design their clothes, have them professionally made and show up on their door step ready to wear.

The site is aimed at girls ages 5-12, but the process is definitely a lot of fun and easy. First you choose from a a design: tops, dresses, outerwear, accessories and even clothes for dolls.  Then you select which designs, motifs and fabrics you would like to use. The design process is really simple as you just click through the stages and select which patterns or materials you want to add. Lace, ruffles, rhinestones, sequins….it’s all there. There are designs for all personalities as well; from the surfer chick’s easy beach style to the pretty in pink princess. The preppy styles are also perfect for back to school. The selections are all so cute, that you can never go too far off course.

If you’re looking to give the finished item as a gift, remember to order early as the clothing takes about three weeks to make up. The emailable gift cards are a great gift option for the young fashionista who can get designing straight away.  My favorite part of the process? Seeing my name on the label!

A must for all budding fashion designers!
