About Us


We're Becky + Elle ( = Belles! ), a mother-daughter duo who loves to develop fashion designs and create hand-sewn apparel and accessories using our selected stylish fabrics. Becky, a life-long seamstress, also crafts amazing handmade quilts. Elle (short for Elspeth) once operated a style blog, and is now honing the craft of sewing, hoping that her mother's talent is genetic. Together we have joyfully designed some chic, classic pieces, and we hope you enjoy them! Each of our one-of-a-kind sartorial products is handmade with love in North Carolina from high-quality designer cotton fabrics. 

Belles of Cotton is not just a conjunction of our names, or in reference to us as "southern belles" - it actually started as a word play on "bales of cotton". Our line features all custom garments for the entire family as well as home décor items, crafted exclusively from cotton. Customers may order their size in a desired item, or they may send us their measurements and we create the clothing accordingly. Our handmade collection of "Beau Ties" can be made with reversible fabrics, and with coordinating pocket squares and cummerbunds. The dashing neckwear is offered for adults, kids, toddlers, babies, and doggies. Our women's apparel includes tunic tops, dresses, shorts, and skirts of various styles. We emphasize comfort in our skirts by including elastic waistbands and pockets, and polish them off with a bow or sash. The trim on our tunics and dresses allows each customer to mix-and-match fabrics to create a look all their own. Numerous sleeve styles and lengths allow for endless options with our dresses and tops. Further, we have children's apparel, decor pillows, dog beds, robes, and aprons. We handle any other custom requests sent by customers, including bridal party apparel, window treatments, and more. Becky & Elspeth are both natives of North Carolina & love showcasing their traditional southern roots in their premium quality cotton collections.

Please contact us with questions! We are always happy to help find the color, print, or pattern you are looking for. If you don't see the fabric you had in mind, just contact us and we'll be glad to help your ideas come to life.

We do accept custom orders beyond the products we offer. Let us know if there's something we can do for you! Please email us for any custom inquiries.
