Becoming a part of the handmade community, I have met the neatest people. By Cee Cee founder, owner, and seamstress extraordinaire Candi Carr is one of those people.
Candi is a Rochester, NY children’s clothing designer. This woman knows kid fashion! She has the most adorable collection of dresses, tutus, and accessories for little girls and really fun clothing for boys! I first met Candi through my Moms group. Her first role is Mama to two beautiful children, surely where she draws inspiration for her creations.
From princess dress-up to custom birthday crowns, By Cee Cee has you covered (literally). Her clothing is whimsical and fun, and we love whimsical and fun :). I love that Candi is very candid about her work. She blogs right on their page, chit chatting about some of her creations or whatever is on her mind. She even gives us a tour of her studio on her page. I love seeing inside an artisans’ space, don’t you? It’s like a peek inside their mind.
Candi created some spectacular holiday dresses for our girls at Christmastime. I saw one of By Cee Cee’s designs in a similar fabric on display at Fairport Pharmacy & Gift Shop where you can find Candi’s designs among other local artisans’ art and other creations. I asked By Cee Cee if she could whip up something similar for the girls & she went above and beyond by coordinating the dresses but not making identical copies, giving the designs a customized finish. Photographed by the lovely Jessica LK Photography, the result was darling and SO MUCH FUN!
Just in time for Easter, or, if not Easter, just in time for Spring (should it ever arrive here in Upstate NY!), By Cee Cee is giving away a gift certificate valued at $25 toward any custom clothing item from her shop to one lucky Whimsical Sweet reader! Choose from endless possibilities to adorn your young lad or lass with something unique and special.
Good luck, faithful readers! 2014 will bring much more fun!!
