All Mimsy Designs dresses are designed with room to grow! Hidden underneath the ribbon ties at the dress sides is an extra 6-8” of fabric, which can expand the dress’s bodice width by tying the ribbons to fit. The hemline is designed to fit most children at mid-calf, so there are a few inches of growing room.

Use the measurements above to select the correct size for your child. If in doubt, choose the larger size ~ children are guaranteed to grow!

(measurements are taken directly off of our dresses, but there might be slight variations).

Fabric Care

All of our dresses are made of 100% cotton. To keep your clothing item looking its best and to avoid shrinkage, follow the recommended instructions:
