100% Cotton.

Dry clean or gentle handwash 30°C. Do not bleach. Do not tumble dry. Iron medium heat. Always wash with zipper closed.

Extra Tipp: After washing, put small towels in the end of the sleeves as it further helps to prevent creasing and hence keep them ‚fluffy‘. A well steam always helps - but don’t forget to let the dress dry properly after steaming!

The fabric has no stretch. Please note: The measurements stated in the table below are the measurements of the finished garment. Which size to choose depends on whether your prefer a more loose or close fit.


The dolman sleeve design allows for a slightly bigger bust. So if you exceed the bust measurement in the table by 1-2cm you can still choose the smaller size (as long as the waist of the downgraded size still fits you - or you could choose the custom waist then in addition). Example: Bust 95cm/Waist 71cm - you can choose Size M.
