Please note that variations may occur due to the handcrafted nature of our products. As with any retailer, there may also be variance in production on dye lots as well as minor improvements in fits and finishes from season to season. Measurements are approximate and variance is not considered defective. Due to the variety of fabrics we use, we ask you to keep these tolerances in mind when comparing one garment to another.


The handcrafted nature of our products and the delicate properties of fine jersey knit require particularly special care. Following wash instructions carefully will help keep your item looking new for longer and will extend the life of your garment. Label instructions: machine or hand wash cold, separately. Gentle cycle. Fasten snap buttons and zippers before laundering. Do not bleach. Lay flat or hang to dry. Warm iron or steam as needed. Dry cleaning recommended.

We are not able to provide laundering instructions outside of our care instructions printed on the label due to the many variables involved in garment cleaning (type and condition of washing machine, detergent, stain removers, cause of stain, etc.). If you have concerns regarding laundering your dress, please consult a professional.

Please note that while all our products are nursing accessible, we are unable to recommend stain removal tips for breastmilk. We recommend that you contact your local dry cleaner or cleaning professional for stain removal and laundering advice beyond care instructions provided on the label.
