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.

Lovely all cotton dress with a shoulder seam problem
I got this dress in size M, my favorite red, and on sale. What could be better?! The fabric is soft and nice 100% organic cotton. Yah! But sadly, the fit of the shoulders was weird. Notice closely that there's some kind of special stitching there. The dress that I received seemed to have seam defects in the upper arm & shoulder area, plus the shoulder fabric was extra thick. It wasn't comfortable. I wish the dress had ordinary seams or even raglan seams. Maybe I should've tried another one to see if it would've fit better when I returned it.

Modern Mini Dress to be Worn as a Tunic Over Leggings
I just received this and love it! I'm 5'6' or so, about 130lbs, small waist, but I do have hips. Very much a pear shape. I worried about my bottom being covered or if so, the top being way to big. It fits perfectly! Very soft and wonderful material. I haven't washed it yet, but the description says it is pre-washed. So very excited to wear this! I do love your products and so happy there is no bamboo in it either!

Order one size down to love this dress!
I tried it on and thought, "This is not a cute dress; it's an ugly baggy sweatshirty-thingy!" -- until I came back here, read reviews, and ordered a smaller size. Now it's a cute dress! Very comfortable and looks great with leggings. Order one size down for a dress that gently finds your curves without squeezing them. You'll love it.

Perfectly comfortable and flattering
Very soft, substantial fabric. Generously sized and very comfortable. Warm, flattering and versatile for fall and winter. I may want to wear it every day.

Soft and comfy
This dress runs big, but once I got the right size, I love it! Material is super soft and warm enough. Cut is casual with slight flattering shape.

High quality on many levels
Such value for a beautifully sewn dress. Fabric and fit are perfect. This is my go-to site now.

Versatile tunic!
This makes an awesome tunic and works really well when paired with leggings and boots, and can easily be layered with a cardigan during the colder months. I initially bought it in charcoal but loved it so much I bought a second one in the blue stripe. They've become wardrobe staples. More colors would be very welcome-- dark green would look great!

Love This Mini Dress
Super soft and comfortable. Easy to wear over leggings with flats or boots. I can dress it up with pretty jewelry for a business casual look or keep it casual as a weekend look. Excellent quality and wears well. I wash on delicate cycle and lay flat to dry.

Perfect LS Tunic Dress
Beautiful little tunic dress! It's so comfortable and flattering - I love it! I usually wear dress size 2 - 4 and the XS fits great. I got the grey for Xmas and then I got the navy stripe after because I love the grey so much. A broader range of solid colors next season would be great. Thanks <3

So soft and flattering!!
This dress is amazingly soft and comfortable, and SO flattering! The length is perfect to wear with tights or leggings, unless you don't mind showing a lot of leg (it hits at the top of my thigh, just below my hips and I'm 5'4").

I would say it runs about 1 size larger than the chart indicates; I have a 29" waist and 40" hips and the small fits me like a glove - hugs all my curves perfectly with a little wiggle room so it's not too clingy.

Attractive and comfy
As another reviewer noted, this dress is soft and comfy, and flattering as well. The seams around the shoulders add a charming touch, even in the charcoal color. For me this is more a tunic than a dress; I'm 5'5" and it's too short to wear without opaque leggings.

Love this dress
I bought this in burgundy, and it's the softest, warmest, most luxurious little dress I have ever owned! Very flattering, very comfortable. And the price is great! I love it!
