Our Products

Do you offer custom dress services?

Yes, we create custom dresses starting at $150. These are tailored to your specifications. Please contact us directly to discuss your design.

Where do you source your fabrics?

We procure our fabrics from eco-friendly, high-quality suppliers based in Vancouver and Quebec, ensuring sustainable and durable materials for our clothing.

Who does the sewing for your products?

All our products are personally handcrafted by our founder and experienced seamstress, ensuring the highest quality and attention to detail.

How long does it take to make a dress?

Each dress takes a minimum of two days of hands-on labor, backed by 30 years of sewing expertise. Our most intricate dresses require the most time and labour. When creating a custom pattern, there is design time, and this concept takes significantly longer from start to finish! Minimum time to make a dress is approx 2.5 hours between cutting, sewing, and trimming threads.

What size and age range do you offer?

Our clothing is designed for children from infancy up to 12 years old, with a focus on dresses for ages 2 to 10.

How do you ensure the sustainability of your products?

We prioritize sustainable practices by using eco-friendly materials, minimizing waste, and choosing local suppliers to reduce our carbon footprint.

How do I care for Rarity garments to ensure they last?

We recommend washing our garments in cold water, using eco-friendly detergents, and air drying to maintain their quality and longevity.
