a belief statement for undergarments*
I believe that things should be made well and made to last so every Ivalieu is sewn with care by the talented ladies at JLD-Studios in Portland, Oregon. I also firmly believe we each deserve to feel comfortable and look good so your Ivalieu is designed with a wide waistband that smooths without squeezing and it's made with durable, performance fabrics that wick and move with you. And because we each own different styles of dresses and skirts - from mini and maxi to A-line and more - we should have different styles of pettipants. That's why I make Ivalieu in three silhouettes: the fitted Sport, the versatile Savvy, and the deliriously fun Rococo.
*I also believe that it's your business as to whether you wear underwear under your Ivalieu. Of course, if you think you might need to return or exchange it, please keep the undies on (see below).

Ivalieu are made the new-old-fangled way: sewn in small runs, in the U.S.A. We keep very few items in inventory.
*Spring 2017 UPDATE: We are working behind-the-scenes to re-stock fabrics and laces so that we can cut and sew more pettipants for summer. All our current stock is shown on our website and once they are gone, they are gone. So grab your favorite prints now and stay tuned for new styles soon!*
IN-STOCK VS ON-DEMAND
Lots of people ask about the word, "Ivalieu." I've always loved names from the turn of last century so I scoured genealogy sites and pored over lists of long-lost relatives. And there I fell upon the name of my great-grandmother's sister: Evelyn Ivalieu Nisewarner. She grew up near Lovettsville, Virginia, where I was raised, and later moved to Warrenton, Virginia, the area where my husband grew up. Ivalieu. It's a beautiful name that bridges past and present.
There's a lot of fun stuff planned through the seasons, including additional prints, colors, and trim, so please check back often or make it even easier on yourself, sign up below to receive updates right in your inbox!
