About Sutherby Lane

Sutherby Lane is an Australian Baby & Childrenswear label crafting beautifully classic, heirloom clothing. Our design's break through the white noise of modern children's clothing, providing a refined collection that celebrates the traditional smocked & embroidered handcrafts of yesteryear. Sutherby Lane truly believes in cherishing infancy & youth, by dressing babies as babies. 

Sutherby Lane is based on a beef property in Western Queensland where I, alongside my farmer husband, operate the business while chasing after cattle & our darling little boy.

The Story of Sutherby Lane

I have fond memories, as a little girl, of wearing pretty hand-smocked dresses & dainty embroidered outfits. I was very fortunate that my mother kept most of these special pieces, which soon became dress-ups for my childhood dolls & inspiration for my own child's wardrobe sometime in the future.


In 2019, my husband & I were blessed to welcome our first child, a precious baby boy named James. I became increasingly frustrated by the lack of classic baby clothes in Australia & dreamed of making this style more accessible. A few sketches later and the Sutherby Lane journey began.

The name "Sutherby" was derived from my late grandmother's name. She was a lady of exquisite taste & timeless style, and always returned from her overseas travels with beautiful smocked clothing for her grand-children. For this reason, it seemed only appropriate to name a classic childrenswear label in her honour. 

It is my wish that Sutherby Lane becomes an adored member of your child's wardrobe - carrying them through all their day to day and precious memories. I hope you find as much joy in my designs, as I have found in creating them for you. 

Wear well, cherish dearly & pass on for generations to come,
