Note: this item is final sale and cannot be returned. In the event that another pattern is desired, it may be exchanged for a different style (depending on available stock). Some exceptions may apply.

These reversable children's dresses are handmade and feature a unique mobius design, allowing for them to be easily turned inside-out to display the secondary dress pattern! The dresses are made with 100% cotton material, adorned with satin ribbon, and feature button-snap closures. These are designed to fit children/babies 18-24 months old. 


Darquise Vien is a Métis woman from Northern Ontario, who has family ties to the Red River settlement. With the guidance of her mother since she was 12, she is mostly self-taught as a sewer. She developed her sewing flair and creativity after her daughter's birth, sewing unique pieces which were most inspiring and gratifying. Wanting to help her co-workers and their families during the pandemic, Darquise Vien sewed over 850 personalized face masks and many headbands. These two years, although overwhelming, allowed her to perfect her sewing techniques and strengthen her creativity with fabric. This love of garment fabrication has brought her to designing colourful traditional garments for children.
