This week's shop feature is Bashful Bear Designs. This shop specializes in making Petite clothing such as skirts, shorts and dresses. She also has a few cute tote bags which I love too. I think my favorite item from her shop is the Green Reversible tote bag. Please check out more about her and the work she does. you just might find something you like.
1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?
The last few years people have started calling me Emma Bear. It’s such a coincidence, because Emma’s Pet by David McPhail was the first book I ever read. It was about a bear named Emma. I thought Bashful + Bear would be a cute and memorable name!
2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
I started my shop in February 2013. As someone with a petite build, I’ve always found properly fitting clothes hard to come by, especially one’s that are cute! I wanted to focus on clothes that had simple lines with a certain classic femininity about them. I think what makes my shop unique is that I use thrifted materials to make my garments and that the shop focus is on custom made items.
