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.

Bestsellers ready to ship

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.
