The Ellie Button-Up!

Limited Edition

Today we’re adding a new button-up top to our Limited Edition collection…the Ellie Button-Up! We love how this top has the same professional, elegant look as a long-sleeve button-down, but it is ideal for summer with its short-sleeves and can also be dressed down with a pair of jeans. This particular pieces has a boxier fit and features a pocket at the chest. The 100% cotton Ellie Button-Up is available in a dark forest green and white, but only 12 total were made, so order yours today!

Tie-Back Top Feature

Basics, Core Collection

We have a couple of tie-back styles available online including our Tie-Back Tank, and our brand new HDH Basics: Tie-Top. You can really make this style work in a plethora of ways whether it means wearing the tie in the front versus the back, or layering the tie-top over another dress for example. The tie is also long enough to wrap around twice, if you prefer having a tie..

While we love how these pieces look on their own sans bra, we also had some fun pairing them with a couple of our HDH Intimates styles. Our Skinny Knot Bralette has a more traditional back with a clasp closure and delicate straps. Our Straightaway Bralette has more coverage, and acts more like a bandeau. Visit our Intimates page for additional sizes and color variations!

The Striped Busy Top

Limited Edition

Today we’re releasing the Busy Top to our Limited Edition collection! Far from busy, this simple 100% cotton, lightweight top is the perfect mix of a relaxed and structured fit. We adore the classic navy and red stipe pattern and the delicate tie around the collar that can be tied in a little bow or left as is. We tucked the Busy Top in a pair of our white cotton chevron Easy Wide-Leg Pants (also available in Plus sizes), but it would look super cute with a pair of more fitted pants as well.

**Fun fact: We named this top after Busy Phillips (Dawson’s Creek, Freaks and Geeks, anybody??). We’ve been loving her style and Instagram stories lately. <3

Going Fast! // Soft Ivory Cotton Gauze

Core Collection

So excited about these beautiful photos taken by our friend, Emilie Szabo, in Copenhagen! They perfectly capture the summery and easy-going vibes of our Ivory Cotton Gauze, and highlight the subtle texture in the fabric. Our cotton gauzes are super soft to the touch, and don’t wrinkle much, which makes them great for packing and traveling. Unlike our Black Cotton Gauze that will continue to be available through the fall, our Ivory Cotton Gauze will be retiring, so be sure to order your HDH pieces in Ivory Cotton before it’s too late! Shop the entire Core Collection here.

Featured Pieces: Short-Sleeve Reversible Wrap Top | Easy Wide-Leg Pant (available in Plus)

The Sustain Shop



At Hackwith Design House, we take several measures to maintain our commitment to sustainability in the fashion industry. Many of the fabrics we use are sourced from a local, family-owned fabric store that specializes in run-off and second-hand fabrics. This is one way we cut down on waste while also supporting our local economy.

Aside from our Limited Edition pieces, HDH pieces are made to order, which means we don’t start any cutting or sewing until your order goes through. This also means that your HDH pieces are made specifically for you, and helps us avoid using unnecessary excess materials. Any fabric waste we create is dropped off at a local fabric recycling center.

From the very beginning when we first launched Hackwith Design House in 2010, we knew that  creating long-lasting apparel would play a huge part in our business model–Hackwith Design House garments are meant to be loved and worn over and over again. We love receiving emails from customers who have religiously worn their HDH pieces through their travels, pregnancies, and day-to-day lifestyles.



As we say over and over again, we want you to love your HDH pieces. While we design our garments with timelessness and versatility in the back of our heads, we understand that things change. Sometimes pieces don’t fit right anymore, they’ve developed small holes or stains from wear, or they’ve simply been collecting dust in our closets for too long.

It is with our newest venture, The Sustain Shop, that we are here to help bring life back to your old HDH pieces in the most sustainable and productive way possible. We’re inviting our customers to send us their used HDH pieces so that we can find them a new home. Pieces that are still in good-as-new condition will be resold on our site at a lower price point. Pieces that we receive with holes, tears, or stains will be evaluated by our team of seamstresses, mended or transformed into a completely new piece. As a thank you for helping us steer toward a waste-free future and for trusting us with your loved HDH pieces, we will send you $20 in store credit (per piece submitted) that you can apply to your next HDH or Sustain Shop purchase.
