Featured Seller: Winter Lights Clothing

Hi there! My name is Haylee and I am the creator of Winter Lights Clothing. I make clothes for curvy girls, and cute accessories to finish off your outfit. I’ve adored crafting of all kinds since childhood, but when I turned 14 the idea of sewing got sparked in my mind for the first time. My mom bought me my first sewing machine soon after…and I fell in love!

It wasn’t until a few years later that I first attempted clothes. Being plus sized, I was livid that there were so few clothing options for bigger girls that reflected my style. It changed my whole outlook to know that just because major clothing companies don’t cater to me, I could make myself something cuter anyway! It was my little “F you” to the fashion industry.

It took months of convincing from my boyfriend to even try selling things at first, but as soon as I opened my Etsy shop in March of ‘08 I got so many wonderful messages from girls telling me how excited they were to have finally found a designer who makes clothes for THEM. *warm fuzzies* Now I can’t imagine my life without it!

I mainly stick to sizes 14-24, but welcome custom orders in ALL sizes! My aesthetic is a combination of sugary sweet with Gothic accents to create a look that is feminine and unique. I’m inspired by various styles, such as the Victorian era, pin-up, gothic romantic, pixie goth, Lolita, 20’s, and 90’s alternative.
