About Mildred: 

Mildred is a small batch and one-of-a-kind clothing label owned and operated by Laine Gabel. All garments are designed and handmade by Laine in her studio located in the Hasting County area of the Ontario countryside. She sources high quality fabric in natural fibres and makes the kind of clothes she loves to wear. New pieces are not released on a collection or seasonal basis, rather individually added to the line when time and need permits. They are made to last and designed to be as versatile as they are comfortable. For inquiries please contact her at mildred.orders@gmail.com

Made to Order Terms of Service:

Made to Order garments include your choice of customizable options for length, fabric and colour as described in each listing. If you are unsure whether a piece will work for your body and style or have questions about taking your measurements please don’t hesitate to email me at mildred.orders@gmail.com to discuss. Sizing up or down isn’t just a simple matter of increasing or decreasing width. Every body is different and I adjust my garments in many ways to work for each body. The aesthetic of each design is maintained regardless of body size and the silhouette will not be altered. You may request substitutions to the neckline, sleeve style, hem type, etc. within reason but redesigning an entire piece is not permitted. My aim is to get the garment right on the first try. However I am not able to predict fit preferences we didn’t discuss. After you receive your garment minor alterations may be requested within one week. Additional charges may apply for alterations including all shipping charges. All Made to Order sales are final.

About Shipping:

I ship using Canada Post. Within Canada, for most regions I charge a base shipping price. If you live in a very remote area I may need to request an additional shipping amount to cover the cost. If you cannot pay this additional amount I can cancel your order, but to avoid this please message me directly for a quote. This applies to USA orders as well. For international shipping beyond the USA please contact me directly for a shipping quote prior to placing your order. If you are trying to purchase a One of a Kind item and worried about missing out on the piece, direct message me via Instagram or email me at mildred.orders@gmail.com


From time to time I will collaborate on a wedding or ceremonial piece. I prefer to use one of my designs as a starting point for this collaboration. Please contact me to discuss! mildred.orders@gmail.com
