Hi I'm Whitney. I am a clothing designer and the mother of two wiggly, wonderful little boys who love adventure and getting as dirty as possible.
As a mom, I found myself searching for clothes that I could feel comfortable in while playing with my kids. Clothes that could be easily cleaned yet still stylish and cute. Sonnet James was born out of the idea that beautiful clothing should work for moms; it should be durable, comfortable and easy to care for. Each day, when I put a Sonnet James dress on, it helps me remember who I want to be; a playful mother who is confident in herself and who wants her kids to feel the same.
YOUNG AT HEART, PRESENT IN THE MOMENT AND MORE PLAYFUL WITH THE ONES YOU LOVE
WHY THE PLAY DRESS?
After both of my pregnancies, I found myself still throwing on my old maternity tops because they were comfortable, stretchy and easy to clean. I longed to wear the fashionable dresses in my closet but didn't want to deal with the comfort restrictions or the dry-cleaning bills. So, I thought I'd try to make some of my favorite dress silhouettes in the same maternity fabric: modal-spandex. This is where Sonnet James began. Crafted out of four-way stretch modal-spandex, my dresses have the flattering lines of runway designers, but instead of dry-clean-only silk-chiffon, lace or wool-crepe, Sonnet James dresses are made from soft, stretchy, durable, and easily washable fabrics. They are the perfect dresses for fashionable mothers.
