DescriptionOur X-form is a simple yet stylish, modern version of mod-trapeze wrap dress. It is super versatile: wear it over swim suits at the beach or sprinkle playground or pair it with our BubbleShorts in a hot Summer day or layer it with short or long sleeve t-shirts and leggings or pants for cooler days. It wraps in the back forming an X and closes with snaps on the shoulders. The wrap-in-the back silhouette is very comfortable allowing maximum playability. Each dress comes with a little storybook about the illustration on the dress. The little storybook fits in the PaperGirl Secret Pocket on the side of the dress so that girls can carry their books in there for on-the-go reading. The inside of the pocket is also illustrated.
All around this wrap-dress you can see “The Swimmers”, a Matisse-inspired paper cut-out collage made by the artists at the PaperGirl art studio. It is digitally printed on 100% cotton and with proper care it will last a long time. The lining is super soft and fresh 100% cotton, nothing itchy or sticky against your girls soft skin. We use high-quality shirting fabric made of the softest Egyptian cotton and woven in Japan. Our illustrated fabrics are printed in an environmentally responsible facility in North Carolina. Accessories that match this dress will be available soon! THE STORY BOOK: This dress includes a little book about “The Swimmers”. This is a how-to book in which kids and their caretakers can learn how to make paper cut-out collages like Henri Matisse used to do. Full with easy to follow step-by-step instructions that will take art making to the next level even for little kids.

All our dresses and tops are based on A-shaped silhouettes that will seem to “grow” with your child. This year’s dress can work as a mid-thigh tunic-blouse next year with leggings and in some girls, may even fit one more year, just shorter as a blouse. The X-form dress wrap-in-the-back silhouette is cut so that it will continue to fit your girl’s growing bodies. We design our clothes so that they last more than one season and more than one child. Our Size Chart: BABY: 9-18 months. This size is cut to standard 12 month size. It can be worn a bit loose 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 our Bubble Shorts or bloomers or leggings. LITTLE GIRL: 2-4 years. This size is cut to standard 3T to fit at mid-thigh length. It can be worn a bit long when she is two and, it will fit shorter as they grow. BIG GIRL: 5-6 years. This size is cut to standard 5T and will fit nicely –with jeans or pants- on 6 year-olds and even some 7 year-olds. CARE Yes! - this can be washed at home. 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 they should 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 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 perfect 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 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. STYLE NUMBER: SP15_X_1 Published using Nembol
