We want to create clothing that you want in good materials. This is sizing you can trust. And I think what we do isn’t rocket science, we just make stuff and we fit to the women around us.
Nettle’s Tale Clothing aims to create clothing that is more than just adaptable, it also feels like it was made for you and is advocating for you. Their campaign has already reached their $7,500 goal however you still have over 2 weeks to back this campaign and save up to 15% on the Canadian manufactured garments. Since everything is being pre-ordered you can pick your colour and your size without worry of it being sold out since your garment will be made specifically for you!
Another reason why I love supporting brands via crowdfunding pages is because of how sustainable it is. When you pre-order anything, especially from smaller ethical brands, you can help reduce the carbon footprint that is produced when brands are trying to project how many units need to be made often times leading to excess stock.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there is no such thing as standardized sizing. One of the best things I’ve ever done for myself to help get rid of fitting room angst was let go of the belief that I am always a a size whatever. Just buys what fits you and what you feel most comfortable in. I have tops that are a size extra small and I have tried on tops that are a large that barely cover my bits, stop beating yourself up over a series of letters on the tag in your clothes.
Still a little unsure of sizing? If you’re around Vancouver stop by their Gastown storefront between 11PM-8PM on Thursdays to try on any of the pieces! (330 W Cordova St.)
Available in two different cuts, the Strait and the Harbour, both tees are a soft blend of bamboo rayon, cotton and spandex (meaning it has stretch, but will keep its’ shape!) The Strait is your standard box-cut tee while the Harbour is slightly longer with a curved hem. Retail value $60 CAD but you save 16% if you opt to buy two tees!
No summer wardrobe is complete without a linen piece (or two) in is’ rotation. Made of 100% linen both the Port Blouse and the Reserve Blouse are my two favourite pieces from the collection. The Reserve Blouse is the Port Blouse without the ruffle detail and both tops feature darting that provide room for the girls, if you know what I mean. Retail value $89 CAD however if you prebook via Indiegogo you can get it for $10 off!
I’ll be the first to admit that I have never found a button up top that fit over my bust so when I read that Nettle’s Tale fitted their Crofton button up on an E cup with no pulling whatsoever I knew that it had to be witchcraft. 100% linen that piece is the kind of classic I dreamt about having when I think of my ideal capsule collection.
I then saw a photo of the model with her hand in SIDE POCKETS and realized that Julia Church is either a witch, a genius or possibly both. Retail value is $129 CAD, $20 off if you buy it now!
The something special
I love jumpsuits. Whenever I’m wearing one people always compliment how dressed up I look but in reality if you think about it, it’s the laziest chic item of clothing you can wear. It’s literally one item of clothing you put on and you’re dressed. The Sonora jumpsuit is seriously something else made up of primarily Lyocell making it ultra soft. I love this piece for its’ ability to be dressed down or up depending on your lifestyle. Retail value is $129 CAD but you can save 15% through Indiegogo at the moment.
