How to take care of my little girl’s dress?

This can be washed at home.  YES!

For best results, we recommend washing these fabrics with phosphate free detergent in cool or warm water using a gentle or delicate machine cycle.

Expect colors to fade a tiny little bit after the very first wash, then remain stable if cared for as directed. This is most notable on darker shades. Front loading washers contribute to color loss due to the increased tumbling action during cleaning. Fading can be minimized through the use of cool wash settings and gentle wash cycles.

Needless to say, NEVER USE BLEACH or use spot treatments as they may affect colors.

May be hand washed with gentle soap.

Tumble dry on a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly.

For best results, iron using standard settings for cotton for a smooth look.  If you are in a rush, pull it out of the dryer and smooth it with your hands. Everyone can live with a few wrinkles!  Steam may also be used to remove wrinkles.

For best results, we recommend ironing on the reverse side of the garment or using a clean cloth between the iron and garment for added protection since mineral deposits in the iron and spraying fabric with a water bottle may cause unexpected staining or markings.  Yes, you can also dry clean it.


How are your sizes?

We know that not all kids have the same proportions so we have designed our clothes to be more flexible.  All our dresses and tops are based on A-shaped silhouettes that will  “grow” with your child.  This year’s dress can work as a mid-thigh tunic-blouse next year with leggings, and with some girls, may even fit for a third year, just as a shorter blouse. The A-form dress has an adjustable buttoned belt in the back to help adjust to your child’s growing body.

We design our clothes so that they will last more than one season and for more than one child.

Our Size Chart:

  • Baby: 9-18 months.  This size is cut to a standard 12-month size. It can be worn a bit loosely by babies over 7 months and will most likely fit until your girl is 2-years-old (longer as a blouse depending on body type).  Pair it with bloomers or leggings.
  • Little Girl:  2-4 years.  This size is cut to a standard 3T to fit at knee length. It can be worn a bit long when she is two and, depending on body type, will fit above knee until she is 4 years or older. 
  • Big Girl: 5-6 years. This size is cut to a tandard 5T and will fit nicely—with jeans or pants—on 6- and even some 7-year-olds.

Our shorts come in one size. The waist band has an adjustable elastic band that is secured to internal buttons to help adjust your girl’s growing bodies:

On a toddler, adjust the waist band to the tightest positions to keep shorts in place.  The bubble shape will provide room for diapers.

On older girls adjust waist band accordingly and, in most girls, they will continue to fit until they are 5 or 6 (depending on body type).
