I have a really hard time not asking owner Melissa Sailer to make her dresses in “my size”. The fact that I can’t wear this dress actually breaks my heart.  Her styles are classic but modern and unbelievably well-constructed. My guess is she has the best-dressed kids around.

LOOK AT THOSE CHEEKS! All cute babies aside, Jenny designs her own fabric and sews each creation from her Cumberland studio. Her pieces are made from all eco-friendly materials including organic cotton, bamboo fabrics and water-based inks. And in case you were wondering, “Aventyr” is the Swedish word for adventure!
