Brooke’s Treehouse is a shop run by a mom who had little chunky baby that needed custom fit clothing, but she loved the older style clothing (in her words, “Heirloom quality”). After discovering a love for sewing and designing these clothes, she has since opened Brooke’s Treehouse to offer these clothes to everyone.
Despite how it sounds, this is not a sponsored post. In fact, the owner of Brooke’s Treehouse doesn’t even know I have a blog (though I have a feeling she’ll figure it out after this post)! I was scouring the internet for “bloomers”, “pantaloons”, or “pettipants” for Squiggle for her Halloween costume. She’s going to be Ponyo.

I kept finding white diaper covers or adult pantaloons, but I finally found some that looked perfect, and were actually the most reasonably priced, too. Those were at Brooke’s Treehouse. I actually found the Brooke's Treehouse shop through amazon.com, but after ordering realized I might not have them in time for our party (a little over a week from placing my order) because there is a hurricane making landfall right now, and it’s sort of a big deal. I decided to look up where the seller was from, found them on FaceBook, and saw that they were, indeed, in the south.
After a message to their shop, I was surprised to hear back so quickly… it hadn’t even been an hour! I had explained my concern with the weather and my sort of last-minute ordering on a Friday night (so them not arriving on time seriously would be all my fault!), and they assured me I should have them Tuesday or Wednesday. The earliest shipping estimate had said the following Friday at the earliest. They arrived the following Tuesday!
A front and back view (having her lift her costume a bit to show the fit) after our little party. The party, of course, means chocolate on everything near her mouth.

And, as you can see, they are perfect for the costume! I ordered a size 5 since Squiggle is a chunk, but Amazon didn’t have the size chart shown on the actual store front page. I wish I had seen the store page, first! Still, they fit great and will get lots of use. I'm glad I ordered up. They are good quality, decently priced, and the customer service is great. I definitely recommend Brooke’s Treehouse if you’re looking for some cute, old timey clothing.
