Fair Indigo Premium Fabrics
Peruvian Pima cotton is one of the softest yet strongest on earth – your dress will feel wonderfully soft right out of the bag and endure beautifully for years with minimal shrinking or pilling. The ingenuity of our organic interlock fabric is its ability to stretch and retain shape beautifully without spandex. This is called mechanical stretch – achieved by the structure of the knitted yarns themselves. The fabric is also washed before the garment is cut and sewn, an uncommon but very beneficial process. It not only insures your dress won’t shrink, but also prevents puckering and twisting around seams that often happens in your dryer when fabric shrinks but threads don’t.
 
How does it do good?
Our non-GMO organic cotton is grown on a small family farm in the climactically ideal Ica region of Peru. It’s then milled and knit in GOTS certified mills that are leaders in water recycling and earth-friendly practices. Our dyes are Oeko-tex certified - gentle on the earth, farmers, garment workers, and you. The dresses are meticulously fashioned in a small fair trade workshop where employees are paid fairly and treated, like family, with dignity and respect.

To ensure you get the best fit for your body type and fit preference, use the charts below. For best results, measure over undergarments at fullest part of your bust, at the natural bend in your waist (usually an inch or two above your belly button), and at the fullest part of your hip.

Favorite Go-To Dress!
This has now become my favorite go-to dress! I ordered the boysenberry - the color is vibrant, it fits nicely, and is well made. I received tons of compliments when I wore it the first time, and I will probably order another one in the near future!

(Also, I want to note that I received excellent customer service when I called about a problem with the shipment. You've got me as a long time customer just for that! Thanks.)

The Perfect Dress
This is my favorite dress, oddly enough. It's just a lovely, soft cotton knit dress that fits me perfectly, and seems to be the right choice for nearly every occasion by dressing it up or down. I now have it in two colors. Love.

Comfy, versatile dress
This dress is very comfortable. The fabric is quite soft, not too heavy but substantial enough. The burgundy color is a beautiful wine red, which I love. It's a nice straight style; the boat neck is pretty conservative (re: high), so good for work, but I'd love if Fair Indigo would do this style (straight skirt, 3/4 sleeves) with a v-neck. The length is perfect for me (5'5"), hitting just above the knee. I got a size small (my measurements are exactly those for Fair Indigo's size 6) and the fit is somewhat loose, definitely not fitted; you could probably size down in this dress if you want a more fitted style, but I'll keep the small since it's quite comfy a bit looser and maybe will shrink a bit with washing.

My first "little black dress"
Comfortable, soft, but substantial, Pima cotton. Fits well even tho I usually wear petite sizes. Looks good with a variety of jackets. Only con is would have liked an inch or two longer length. Have not washed yet, so reserve judgment in that regard. If it washes nicely and without shrinkage, great value!

Best dress ever!
Hi, I am not small, not big,....maybe fluffy. This dress is so comfortable....it feels like a very favorite worn nightgown. We went to an all day and night wedding and I was so comfortable. I put some funky jewelry and a little jacket over it. It is so versatile.A belt with a pop of color and different jewelry could be a whole new look. The best part is when I got warm I felt just fine taking my jacket off because of the 3/4 length sleeves. (definitely hides my angel wings.) This dress is very slimming and I will be ordering it in another color. Thank you so much!

Great texture, nice shirt
I loved the soft cotton of this shirt and hoped that the terra cotta color would flatter me, but it was earthier than I expected. The patch pockets are subtle, and the sleeves of this shirt are flared at the cuffs, which is a nice touch. Unfortunately, I had to return it because it was just too tight and clingy across the chest and back.

This is a great dress.
The fabric is soft yet substantial. The fit is very flattering. I'm 5'7", 140 lbs and the medium fits well. I bought the dress in navy. Now, I'm going to buy the eggplant and the black.

Soft and cute
I love how this dress feels and that it covers and slims my arms. I wish it was a tad shorter (I am only 5'3"...will hem it a couple of inches) to avoid looking dowdy. It also is a little loose in the waist so I will wear a belt with it....I probably could have gotten a smaller size but I love how the shoulders and arms fit (I am unfortunately wide in that area!). It is cute and can be dressed up

Great dress at a great price
I was happily surprised when I tried on this dress to find that it fit perfectly all over - neither too tight nor too baggy. The neckline is flattering and great for accessorizing, and the weight of the fabric will make it a three-season dress. I'm very pleased, thinking of ordering it in another color. BTW, I'm 5" 3" and about 110 lbs., and the XS was fine.

the perfect go-to summer dress
I've been looking for this dress for years. Flattering, soft, covers my upper arms in summer while not being heavy and hot. The fit is perfect. Looks great with accessories like a contrasting belt and drapey jewelry, or with a relaxed jacket. I do wish they offered more interesting summery colors and stripes - I would order more.

Great little black dress
Nice dress, but the fit is not perfect. It is very loose in the back between shoulders and derriere and does not follow the contour of the back--not a normal fit for me. It fits across bust and across hips but is a little loose in the middle. Otherwise nice and can be camouflaged with a sweater or belt.

Great black dress
So satisfied with this dress. I dress it up with pearls for church and wore it to work with costume jewelry and out to dinner. Sizing was perfect for me. THANK YOU Fair Indigo!!!

I'm in love!
This dress is wonderful! I was a bit hesitant to order it as knit dresses typically aren't real forgiving, if you get my drift. I feel in love with this dress the moment I tried it on. It runs true to size, and being a 'mature' woman, I appreciate the longer length of the sleeve. The knit fabric is of a high quality so the dress hangs beautifully and it is very, very comfortable. I jazzed it up with a floral scarf as by itself, it is a bit plain. But hey, that just means it goes from super casual to perfect for the office. The possibilities are endless. I think this is going to be one of my go-to pieces year 'round.
