visit our Pop-UP with Kallio


When I met Karina Kallio I knew we would work together, besides the fact that we have the same name (!!) I loved that she was doing. For her namesake collection she takes vintage shirts and makes one-of-a-kind kids clothing. I thought it would be fun if we do a Pop-Up together! 10-12 vintage shirts that have been lovingly re-created into dresses! Each piece made in one size (as listed) and your little girl can have her very own re-creation dress!


In each style you can see the work that Karina has put into each piece, finding a way to use the shirting details to their strengths. Shirt-tail hems, button plackets that button up the back for easy venting and a whimsical detail.


One of our favorites is this shirt dress! possibly the closest to the original but she still manages to slip in her fun details like - shirt-tail hem, roomy pockets the collar is left as is and makes a cute over-sized shirt collar for girls!



Karina makes good use of chambray shirts in these denim dresses that are soft and easy for kids! shirt-tail hems, buttons up the back and shirt cuffs.




The beach dress is easy and perfect for summer, with adjustable ties , button up the front and a shirt pocket at front. Karina has taken care in choosing trims with a sense of humor and juxtaposing stripes and solids... This may inspire you to make your own re-purposed dress! I hope so.... get your sewing machine out!
