We’ve been busy busy here at Pretty Things Boutique with our in house clothing line the last month and half. We’ve gone from 15% of our stock being produced on location to over 60% of inventory made in store. This is very exciting news for us as it has been long time dream of store owner and designer Cadence Macmichael to develop this line to sell in the boutique.
Seamstresses working away on new half circle skirts that will be ready for next week
100% of the production of the Pretty Things Boutique clothing line is done at shop location at 5240 Blowers Street. From pattern drafting (which is all done by hand) to sewing the completed garment is done right in the store from Monday to Friday during regular business hours – you may even hear the machines going if you pop into our shop while we’re sewing! We currently have a sewing staff of 5 local seamstresses working part time along side store owner (who also cuts and sews many of the garments as well).
A collection of tops and skirts made at Pretty Things Boutique now available
New items are being created weekly so there are constantly new items being added to the sales floor, many of which sell out faster than we can advertise online so if you are in the Halifax area make sure to check with us regularly to see what styles we have in stock. Many items are limited edition which makes them even more special because once many of these fabrics are gone they will not be produced again exactly the same.

Currently our sizes run from XXS to XL (which is roughly a size 4 to 14) but we’ve had a lot of people ask us if we are going to do a plus size line for our store and the answer is yes! Definitely! We’ll be doing a mix and match collection of separates and basic dresses to start as we develop the line and will move forward into more items in the future. Sizes will range from 16 to 26 and we expect to have some of these items produced over the next few weeks so be sure to stay tuned we’ll be slowly adding pieces to inventory as we develop them. Don’t worry we’ll alert you on the new arrivals via our Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts!
We want to thank our customers for their own going support of our business and now the support of our newly expanded clothing venture. We couldn’t make any of this happen if it wasn’t for you! So a big thank you and lots love to you wonderful folks. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions about our line, we’d love to hear from you.
