By Design is a small, quaint shop located in the heart of Downtown Alton, Illinois. By Design features custom clothing and art, alterations, and even classes in the “School of Fashion.” Shop owner Lillian Bates opened her doors in 2008 out of a love of sewing and crafting that began in her teen years and never faded.

By Design features Lillian’s “wearable art” as well as the work of several different textile artists and crafters. These artists may include jewelry makers, fashion designers, and even greeting card makers, but the list does not stop there. View the website in the link above for more information about the shop and about current artists featured at the shop.

Stop in the very unique By Design on your next trip to Downtown Alton for custom gifts and much more. Don’t pass up this treasure trove!

Tuesday through Friday: 10 am to 6 pm
