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.

Substantial yet soft/flowing knit
Subdued purple color is true to the picture and the knit is substantial yet soft and flowing. A few spritzes with water and the wrinkles from shipping disappeared! I'm a 12/14 and the L fits well. Slit on the left side is too high for this old lady (especially when getting into the car) but I can fix that.

Lovely soft flattering dress
The fabric is very soft and touchable. Purple color is pretty. The arm holes are a bit big, so Imwill have that altered. I got an Xl size and it fits, i have large breasts and it is not tight.

Adorable and comfortable.
Adorable and comfortable. Slit was a bit higher than expected, but adds a little sexiness.
