The Per·se·ver·ance edit

We had beautiful summer designs ready for sewing earlier this year.  Then on April 25, a massive earthquake struck Nepal and our plans were changed. The fabric that was ordered and in transport to the sewing center was untraceable. We persevered with the designs we knew would be great items year 'round. Got creative, and worked with what we could. Love the new Per·se·ver·ance releases.

The Lawren dress

Lawren's love for fashion and risktaking has made this dress the perfect accumulation of style. Pair with accessories to enjoy the fun it has to offer. Shop this dress

The Jayden tee

Jayden is ambitious and full of dreams. A pretty tee that can go places. The braided empire waist is a reminder that God is weaving together her future. Shop this tee

The Lena top

Lena's a combination of classy and edgy. Sweet and drapey with a layered look, but unique with the seaming and silhouette. Shop this top

The Sadie dress

Sadie's motto is to "live original." Her style is youthful as the roll up sleeves, yet classic and sophisticated as the modest length. The criss-cross in the back is bold, perfect for this true leader. Shop this dress

The Namra tank

Namra translates to "Loyal" in Nepalese and will stay with you always. Live in comfort without the need for layering or your bra straps showing. Its best feature is a modest neckline, armhole and length. Shop this tank

Made in Nepal

Designed with purpose to provide meaningful employment for women rescued from sex trafficking. It was made in Nepal, one of the least developed countries in the world, which ranks high for trafficking. This design creates a bright future for women like Gita who made it.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
