The thought of a forensic scientist-turned-clothing designer is certainly not something you hear about everyday, and neither is the kind of high-quality, eco-clothing that can be found in the ‘Brava Boutique.’ This truly special clothing is made from upcycled t-shirt dresses and can even be custom made-to-order!
When looking through the ‘Brava Boutique’ on Etsy, the thought of picking out just one of these adorable children’s dresses seems impossible, as a result of the boutique's endless abundance of dresses for everything and everyone. For those parents particularly nostalgic about a favourite candy, soda, retro band or movie, the ‘Brava Boutique’ can create these eye-catching dresses out of Mom or Dad’s favourite t-shirts. Carrie Poniewaz -- one of the designers behind the ‘Brava Boutique’ -- shared with Trend Hunter some of her mom’s best advice: "learn to type and learn to sew and you will always have a job and something to wear." These dresses would make for the perfect summer gifts or little personal indulgences!
