January 2022 update

We sold so many of our Little Dresses at the local Christmas markets and have been busy since then on special orders. But I am happy to say we are ready to start adding to our Little Dresses range with Chickens being the first.

Featured Dress This Week

Koru Fronds

This range is all about Kiwiana and celebrating New Zealand.

Koru represents the appearance of a new unfurling silver fern frond. It is an integral symbol in Maori art, carving and tattooing, where it symbolises new life, growth, strength and peace.

Size 12-18 months NZ$30 (Includes a charity donation of $16.55)

Chest size 54cm / Length 51cm (shoulder to hem)

SIZING– Each Little Helpers Dress is made with different yarn so are slightly different sizes within the age range below. I have included the chest measurement and length of each Little Helpers Dress to help you to choose the right size.

MATERIALS– Each Little Helpers Dress is made using 100% natural machine washable materials. The skirts are 100% cotton fabric. The knitted bodice is made up of different summer yarns, eg cotton, bamboo, linen. We aim to buy our materials at the best price we possibly can, providing a larger donation to our charities. We also use recycled buttons where we can. We hugely appreciate the additional support we get from our Supporters. Check out our Supporters page.
