Most every little girls dreams of being a fashion designer at one time or another.  Fashion Playtes was created to give them that chance!  It is the perfect place for them to express her creativity in a safe, imaginative environment.  I recently got to let my girls play around with designing their own outfits, and let me tell you fun was had by all!

It’s so easy for your girl to make her own clothes!  First she chooses what type of clothing she wants to design – whether it’s a dress, pants, shirt and more.  Next comes the color , then it’s time for special touches like ribbons, appliques and she’ll create her own custom label!  She can even see what her design looks like by putting the outfit on her online character model.

She can either save the design or add it to her wishlist.  If you you decide to order the clothes, they’ll arrive at your house in 2-3 weeks.  This process is completely safe for your child!  The only personal information they’re asked to provide is their parent’s email address.

Can’t wait to get started?  Fashion Playtes is offering FREE shipping from now until November 30th on any customized dress order with the code DRESSFS!

      We are on a limited budget for the holidays but more than that it is really hard to find things suitable for my 9 1/2 yr. old.  She has taken a really affordable sewing class in the past and unfortunately the teacher had to stop teaching.  Our goal this year is to spend more giving than receiving and to teach our 2 daughters the TRUE meaning of Christmas.

    85. Justagirl74 says:

      My 7 yr old daughter would LOVE this. She already spends all her free time filling up notebooks drawing fashion designs. It would be so much fun for her to have a gift card to design online and wear the things she made!!!

      Following you and Fashion Playte on facebook!  My 10 year old loves to create designs in drawings and out of her closet/playchest.  She changes clothes about 50 times a day – more if she has girlfriends over.  Perfect opportunity to turn her to turn a favorite past-time into reality.  Love to win!

    90. Amy says:

      What an awesome idea Fashion Playtes!!  This reminds me of the game I had when I was young.  You rubbed over fashion plates with a black crayon and you could create your own look then color it.  My two girls would love this.  One loves fashion more than the other but however both like being unique.  Creating their own outfit and no one having one exactly like it would be cool!

      • Rae says:

        I just had that same flashback!! little plastic pink plates that you chose for the top, bottom, and maybe hair? some of the rubbings had “texture” so you could color in plaids….that was back when my parents’ phone was an olive green rotary dial. I AM NOT OLD. 

    91. Laura says:

      My teen girl would love this. She has great fashion sense & helps me pick my clothes.

      This would be great cos the girls can not only design their own clothes, but they get to “buy” and wear them too!

      I have one daughter who, since she was about 2 would beg for a couple of those paint color sample cards every time we went to the store. She loves putting them side by side. She checks how the colors look together, she has drawn patterns on some, simple, cheep fun. She would love this.

      I think this is a great gift because girls can put their own personal touches on their clothes, which I’m positive most of them will love!
