Made in America?

So, how many things are you wearing that are Made in America?

Made in America: The Clothing Challenge

When I first saw this video, I felt pretty proud- 75% of my clothes were made in America- pajama pants I’d made myself, a hoodie my Grandma had knitted, and an American Apparel tshirt.  I must sheepishly admit that my undies were the only article that weren’t!  It’s okay that I’m still working on changing out all my pairs as they wear out, right?

American-made poodle skirts from Distinctive Costumes

Having worked in a Halloween costume factory (Disctinctive Costumes- love their poodle skirts!) and with two generations of my family working in Ford assembly plants, manufacturing is huge part of my conscious.

Is the Made in America label important to you?

About La Vie en Orange

I've been sewing since I was 4. Grandma started teaching me with Barbie and pot holder loops. Barbie had a lot of neon tube tops and mini skirts that season. :) Soon I was taking lessons and making pillows, shorts, pajama pants. Meanwhile I was flexing my entrepreneurial muscles selling homemade necklaces and hair bows at school. Fast -forward 20(!) years, and here I am. So excited to be selling eco-friendly undies and sharing my something special with the world! Thanks for stopping by! :)
