Welcome to Graceful Threads, a modest clothing boutique featuring classic, historic and artistic designs for women and girls.

Graceful Threads is a home-based business committed to providing families with custom made modest clothing at a reasonable cost. We have been in business since 2007 and have come to know many of our customers personally through the relationships formed in communicating with one another.  We are honored to make what we could call slow clothing in a true artisan fashion.  Garments are hand cut and sewn based on your desired size and choice of fabric.  Our services include simple alterations that tailor a garment especially for you.  Our garments include simple, classic and contemporary designs which have been drawn from a variety of historic and modern sources.  No two garments will be exactly alike and we hope that you will enjoy your one of a kind pieces.

We have over 500 fabrics for you to choose from, all sourced from US owned fabric companies.  Whenever possible we choose from within these companies for fabrics that are made with cotton grown here on our continent.  We are also keeping our eyes open for more organic fabrics that we can offer for an appropriate price. Take a look around the various fabric choice pages and you will find old fashioned calicos, bold fun prints and all the staples like denim, chambray, corduroy, twill and all sorts of whites.  Don't be afraid to mix and match with coordinating colors for unique, one of a kind outfits.  We carry only high quality fabrics and welcome your suggestions for new fabric combinations.  Our garments are carefully sewn and edges are finished. Turnaround time is six weeks but we often are able to ship sooner than that and rush orders are easily arranged for a reasonable cost.  Ready to ship garments and cut fabrics will ship out weekly, usually on Saturdays.  The simplest way to order is to use our secure shopping cart where you can order via Paypal or credit card.  You can even order by check or money order through the cart.        

We do not pre-wash our fabric. Please allow for approximately 1 inch shrinkage per yard on our 100% cotton fabrics.  Please measure carefully and let us know if you have questions after looking at the size charts.  Almost all disappointments can be avoided by ordering the right size.  See our  "About Us" page for more information on policies and returns.

We recommend washing our cottons in cool or warm water.  Delicate cycle is recommended by the manufacturers but in our house, they are usually washed on regular cycle.  Hang to dry or tumble dry low.  We do not recommend hanging any of our clothing in direct, harsh sunlight.  Quilting cottons and yarn dyed cottons may begin to fade.  Please see specific instructions for washing our Linen blends.  

Orders can be placed online through our cart or by email and if we are available, by phone.  Phone and email orders are payable by Paypal Invoice or check through the mail.  We welcome your questions anytime.  Please call the number below or for the quickest service, send an email using our contact form at the top of the page.  Messages and emails placed on weekends will be answered on Mondays.  For those who are calling, we are located in the Eastern Time Zone and accept business calls between 9am and 5pm.  Please kindly leave a message if we are not available. 

We do ship to Canada and International destinations.  Please order through our cart.  International customers may pay for shipping when you order or when your garments are ready to ship.  You may also email your order and we will send you an invoice that can be paid through Paypal.
