Painted Clothing

Our "wearable art" items are original designs by Swirls and Twirls.  Though the following items have been sold, the actual painting can be custom-ordered on another denim piece.

Denim items are available for the painting!  We have many denim clothing items in stock; dresses, skirt-alls, and overalls are available in a number of sizes and styles.  Please contact us with your particular interest(s) and clothing size needed.  If there is a specific design you desire or you would like to discuss an idea for us to paint for your special someone, we would be happy to discuss it with you!

Please note our wash and care recommendations for any painted garment purchased here at Swirls and Twirls.

Custom Painted Clothing

Scroll down to find a sampling of previous painted clothing designs.  Swirls and Twirls original designs are often posted for auction at eBay and displayed below for your inspiration in creating the perfect outfit for your little one.  Don't forget, we can do mother-daughter or matching sibling painted clothing designs as well!  The Price Scale for custom painting items can be found below.  If you desire an adult-size, please contact us for pricing.

Denim.  Denim.  Denim.  You will find that the choice palette for the designs at Swirls and Twirls is Denim.  Denim has the perfect texture, durability with wear and tear, a nice tight weave and 'holds' the paint well.  If you desire an outfit that is not of denim, please let us know.

Painted Clothing Price Scale:
All sizes require an initial deposit to begin work.

All Child Sizes $50.00 and up $30.00

Want to personalize a favorite item in your child's closet?  Have a favorite pair of denim overalls, blue jean jacket, jeans, skirt-all, or otherwise that you would like to have custom-painted for your child?  Contact us for details on custom painting on previously owned/worn garments.  Although Swirls and Twirls cannot guarantee wear and tear on a garment that has been worn and washed multiple times, we would be glad to personalize it for your child.

Own a boutique or specialty children's clothing store?  Swirls and Twirls will accept wholesale and bulk orders for six (6) or more garments.  Please contact us for agreeable wholesale quantity/bulk pricing.  Deposits will apply.

Painted Clothing has been all the rage for years.  The Swirls and Twirls design team displays a 'flashback' focus on some of th late 80s and early 90s painted clothing for your viewing pleasure.




Wash and Care:  Swirls and Twirls uses only the finest of fabric paints for their designs.  The artists' recommendations are that the painted clothing be washed gently in cold and hung to dry.
