The Homemade Kid is a fashionable baby and toddler clothing line made in Seattle by the people who know children best: moms. The line previously consisted of graphic T-shirts, but recently Ashley Summers, who founded the business out of her home in Ballard when her daughter was 2 weeks old, expanded it to include leggings, shirts, dresses, rompers and accessories in both unique prints and staple colors.
Everything from pattern design to fabric cutting is done by local moms. With its mountains and pine trees, the PNW Grown collection by CAVU too Designs, out of Anacortes has a distinctly Pacific Northwest vibe. The super-comfy Ari Romper, designed by a West Seattle mom, was recently released in anticipation of summer and is made from a light cotton blend with a halter top and open back. Coming down the pike are shorts and sleeveless dresses in fun tropical prints, along with Fourth of July accessories, leggings and bloomers.
Summer notes that her team can craft custom outfits for an extra-unique look. Order online or look for the label at a number of local shops, including Bootyland Kids in Wallingford Center, Boston Street Baby Store at Pike Place Market and My Three Little Birds in West Seattle.
