junior bridesmaid's dress, too...thanks for thinking so!

We love our fans...

Thanks are always appreciated but certainly never expected.    
And a note this thoughtful from the father of a few little flower girls, didn't go without our blushing appreciation!
I have been meaning to write a note thanking you for the amazing dresses you made for  our wedding.  My daughters had so much fun dressing up and looked so cute and charming. I know that my oldest daughter also had an awesome time picking out the fabric and material for the dress. 
It made the whole wedding that much more special for her.

We also love your regular line. It's made with such care and attention to detail.  
Thanks again and let me now if you ever decide to make clothes for men.

 If you need help with your special occasion needs, send us an email
we are truly happy to help!

We love what we do...

...And appears our customers do, as well.  
Read this incredibly thoughtful note, that a recent customer sent us, 
about the flowergirl dress and jacket we made for her daughter...

                       Hi Beth,

Just wanted you to know we received 
the dress and jacket and both are wonderful.
Even my daughter's 8 year-old brother 
commented that her dress was 
"REALLY pretty!"  

Thank you so much, 
it was really fun and special to work with you.

Makes me love what I do even MORE!

ses petites mains + Amy Merrick = flower girls

At ses petites mains, we believe in beautiful partnerships.  Take, for example, the fringe hem at the sweep of our Sofia dress.  Or, the striped organza skirt on our polka dot bodice of the Gertie dress.  

 Oh, and these bouquets by the 
Brooklyn-based florist, Amy Merrick.  

They must have been made with our special occasion dresses in mind.  

Amy Merrick flowers, ahhh.  

We give Flower Girls a new meaning!

See our full collection of dresses here...

Color, or lack thereof--its black & white!

They say opposites attract, so I guess that would explain why I--
lover of color and lots of it--
was so drawn to these rooms of very little, color, that is.

Enjoy...and, now knowing what you know about me, 
I'm certain I need NOT call out which rooms belong to me!

here comes the weekend

Its been one of those weeks.  
Days that never stretch on long enough to handle 
all that we have to get done at ses petites mains.  
But we are so grateful to have the orders 
and demand for our tiny chic clothing.  

And now that its Friday, I dream of collapsing into my bed!
Doesn't hurt that the rain & cold are headed our way.

Hope you find your own cozy spot to hide out in, this weekend.
