About Our Apparel

Children’s Couture is an award-winning Design Studio and Showroom where the artist, Mary-Alice Dalton, skillfully handcrafts each piece ensuring uncompromising quality with lasting beauty, value and enjoyment. Her designs are unique and stylish, fun and functional, and always a delight to see and wear. Her craftsmanship is superb, using couture and traditional construction techniques creating a timeless art piece to actively wear and enjoy today, then pass down from one generation to the next.

Each apparel piece is a masterful composition of design, detail, and technique featuring:

  • Artistic signature details; tiny pintucks, ruched piping (on limited pieces), hand-finished bias bindings, linings and hems, and impeccable topstitching creatively combined with distinctive styling and fabulous fabrics, all exclusive to the Children’s Couture Apparel Collections.
  • Fabric-covered buttons adorn a center back opening.
  • An embellished back sash to tie into a pretty bow or stylish knot.
  • A lined bodice, finished seams, and attention to detail that add value to the finished piece.
  • Easy care; machine wash and dry in warm water, gentle cycles, and low heat. Press with a warm steam iron, if desired. High quality cotton fabrics make ironing a thing of the past.
  • A perfect fit, cut with room-to-grow for added comfort and extended wear; often 1 ½ - 2 years of wear for the toddler and girls’ sizes.
  • Fabulous fabrics, exclusive to the Children’s Couture brand, in a variety of colors, prints and motifs. All fabrics are premium 100% cottons from America’s leading fabric manufacturers and work up beautifully for any occasion.
