As much as I love the high street for some bargain baby outfits, sometimes I yearn for something a little more individual, and a little less mainstream. I tend to have occasional guilt pangs about loving products that are mass produced in factories. Even if they are really cute.
So I was somewhat relieved to discover Not Mass Produced, who create handmade kids clothing in their base in Somerset. The range has a vintage, almost Tudor, edge and you can clearly see the effort put into each product.
I like this newborn gift set (right) in a neutral colour to please everyone. The set consists of a knitted beanie hat and jacket, made of pure cotton to avoid allergies. It's £20 and machine washable too, a bit of a necessity for new mums.
Handmade outfits are not just for newborns though. Here's a few more hand made goodies:
This pretty little 'Ros' print dress is from the Liberty range, and is priced at £34.99. As with all of the range, it's completely handmade. It's available for babies aged 6 months to 3-years-old.
This girl's dress comes with contrasting button detail and thick lining to keep your daughter warmer. It's £39.99 and also from the Liberty range. Obviously these outfits are more expensive than some of the high street options, but the amount of work and care that goes into these dresses are much higher.
Finally, we've got this high neck baby dress that reminds me of the sort of thing the children used to wear in the Secret Garden. The dress is full lined and comes in a few different colours, and will cost you £44.99
What do you think? Do you prefer a more individual touch, or love to pick up a bargain on the high street?
