Handmade childrens costumes by Atelier Spatz

The tailor to your child’s wild dress-up closet

Atelier Spatz started with Jo’s own kids growing up with vintage costumes that had been in her family for generations. Missing from the seafarer’s chest of costumes in her parents’ attic was a bird cape and so she made one. Over the past ten years, the bird capes have remained a signature costume although she has now designed and sewn everything from snow queens, ringmasters and superheroes to fairies and pirate costumes.

Made in Luxembourg

Children's costumes made the artisan way

It’s been ten years of juggling needles and dreams! As a small business tailor, my days are a seamless blend of creativity and commerce. From measuring and selecting fabrics to crafting bespoke pieces that tell unique stories, I thrive on turning visions into reality while juggling emails, social media, business opportunities and motherhood.

And in 2022 the studio found a new home in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Relocating a business is never an easy task and I am grateful that the Luxembourg Chambre des Métiers as well as the many seamstresses and supporters of small business here in Luxembourg made me feel so welcome.

This autumn I was able to attain the “Made in Luxembourg” badge and officially become part of a community of quality artisan businesses. And I’m still serving costumers worldwide from this gem of a small country.

Atelier Spatz Springtime dress up

Nature awakens

Spring is the perfect time to dress up in a nature related costume.

It encourages a deeper appreciation and connection with the natural world. When children embody animals or plants, through costumes, they are more likely to develop respect for nature.

This imaginative play can also spark curiosity about different species and ecosystems, encourage them to spend more time outdoors and learn about the environment that surrounds them at it transforms.

Need something special, but urgent?

Some of Jo’s costume designs are so popular, so they are made in small batches and offered in the shop as “ready to ship” items. Just like a bespoke or made to order design, all costumes are made in quality fabrics using predominantly natural fibres and made in a sustainble way in the studio or with the help of a local seamstress.
