How Clever Charlotte Works

How Clever Charlotte Works

Clever Charlotte is born out of a love of children’s wear with clean, modern designs and a love of beautiful fabric.  We want to inspire today’s sewers to create perfectly-styled handmade looks for their wee ones that are sure to bring compliments.  This inspiration comes not only from our original sewing patterns, but also the array of fabrics and notions that we carry especially for our designs.

Our designs are meant to be playful and sophisticated at the same time.  They are suitable for everyday activities as well as special occasions.  For inspiration, our online gallery will feature more design ideas and styling options for each pattern.

  • Our sewing patterns.  Purchased together with our fabrics or separately, Clever Charlotte’s original patterns will let you make trendy and unique clothes without paying boutique prices.   It is important to us that Clever Charlotte represents modern tastes.  We strive to produce fashions that are rich in detail and, yet, easy to make.   Our patterns cover sizes 2T-8 and are printed in full-scale on heavy tracing paper so that you can use and reuse them as many times as you wish.  Though we’ve written the accompanying instructions to guide beginner sewers, Clever Charlotte’s designs are sophisticated so that even the most skilled sewer will find them fun and satisfying to sew.  Each pattern includes an exclusive Clever Charlotte clothing label for sewing into your creations so that you can take pride in your garment. (Additional labels will be available for sale in our shop.)
  • Fabrics, notions and moreOur fabrics and notions.  Take the second guessing out of buying fabric online.  To make your sewing experience fun, streamlined and immediately rewarding, Clever Charlotte offers a one-stop source for fabrics and notions suitable for our patterns and showcased on our website.  Prompted by our own frustrations of buying fabrics online for sewing projects, often from multiple sites to find the right fabric in terms of weight and color, we wanted to offer sewers the opportunity to order fabrics that are perfect for our patterns. We have taken the hard work out of selecting fabrics by presenting coordinating seasonal fabric collections that are complementary to our patterns.  Our fabric selections emphasize stylish, quality apparel fabrics that are easy to sew, easy to care for, and comfortable to wear.
  • Clever Charlotte “One-Click” Sewing Kits.  At your option, we will be offering sewing kits to be delivered to your door with everything you need to get started sewing the minute you open the package.  You choose the fabrics and any special styling options, and we’ll send the fabric and notions off to you with quick, reliable shipping at one low-price.

We hope you like sewing with us–we look forward to seeing your creations from our patterns!

Happy Sewing!
