FAQ + Shop Policies

Welcome to Mitzi Loves Dottie, a small business that's run by me, Tori. I take preloved clothing and textiles, vintage and donated yardage, and recreate them into bonnets, bows, and bloomers, giving those fabrics a whole new life. New bonnet collections are added to the website on the fourth Sunday of every month. They are a mix of ready to post and made to order and come with a 5-7 day turnaround time. In addition to monthly collections, I also offer made to order, custom, and surprise slots which you can learn more about here. Once a month, a release a special design bonnet (or bloomers) that is exclusive to my social media pages only.


We offer many different styles of bonnets, bows, and bloomers and getting the right fit is important. Read about sizing here.

Sleep and Carseat safety

Please be sure to take all precautions when putting your sweet babies in our bonnets. We do not recommend having your baby sleep with a bonnet on or wear one while riding in a car seat. Bows should not be played with and can become detached from their clips.
