Sizing and Care
Our garments are designed to be loose and flowing - perfect for today's more casual lifestyle. However, garments look best when they are the correct size for your frame. We create all of our blouses and tunics in 3 basic sizes: XS for 6-8, S/M for 10-14 and L/XL for larger 14 - 18. Dresses are available in a S/M (fits 8-12) and a L/XL (fits most 14 - 18).
Our one-size fits most garments are the kimono jacket, wrap and scarf.
Feel free to call or email if you have specific questions about sizing. I am happy to use your measurements to determine which size would be the best fit for you!
All of our garments are easy care - just handwash with a gentle shampoo (such as Johnson's baby shampoo), rinse and hang to dry - I hang mine up while it is still dripping (I don't wring out the water). If your garment looks a little wrinkled after drying, let it hang in the bathroom while you shower - the steam will pull those wrinkles out. And if you like to iron, your garment can be pressed - I use a steam iron set on 3 when I create all of the garments.
Shampoo is better for silk than a Woolite or other product. Silk is a protein fiber - just like your hair, so shampoo is perfect. Just keep it gentle - no clarifying or other harsher shampoos.
If you stain one of your garments, put a drop of shampoo on the stain, let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then handwash normally. If the stain is not completely removed, try that again. I have had success with a Shout stain stick when the shampoo was not 100% effective.
