Seeking local children - pattern testing and modeling


We need help growing our shop!

Do you live in Williamsburg James City County or surrounding area? Do you have a super cute kid who wears clothes sizes 12 months to 4 T? Do you have a minute for your super cute kid to try on our clothes and help us determine if the sizing is correct? Are you interested in allowing us to use images of your super cute kid in our clothes in exchange for exclusive discounts and discounts for your friends? Let us know! whigstories(at)gmail(dot)com or message us via Facebook or Instagram.

Knit Dresses

Well it has been a little while since we added to the blog. There was Thanksgiving of course, and then Christmas and now it is ski season (ski season is a big deal to 1/2 of Whigs & Tories staff of two)
and we have been stitching away, the best place to keep up with our latest is Instagram https://www.instagram.com/whigs_tories/

But we've been playing with knits and a new pattern we've dubbed "The Playground Dress" and we are having loads of fun. Which is perfect because this dress is all about fun.

We think these dresses would be 'tres mignon' paired with tights or high socks and rain boots.

A few fall items are posted in the shop

It has been so warm this fall it almost doesn't feel like fall at all! And with this storm making its way towards the East Coast we will have to see if there are any leaves left to turn color afterwards. But it is fall - and we love fall at Whigs & Tories. The mountains in Virginia offer gorgeous opportunities to view foliage changes, pick apples, drink some local cider, and go pumpkin picking. And we've got just the thing to wear!

Floral Patterns & Play Dresses

We love floral prints and we are having a great time mixing and matching these florals. Our color schemes are coral and yellow with lots of color accents. Easy to wear in summer, easy to transition to fall.
