Shop policy

Thank you for ordering with us! We love seeing your happy children with the choice you made.

We will guide you through the order process and help with size charts, matching colours and pretty accessories to deliver an amazing product and customer experience.

Here are a few things you need to know:



Please, choose the right dress size carefully. For your convenience, we put the detailed sizes chart and measurements of the dress in each listing.

We are here to help you with sizing assistance if you send us chest, waist, and the full height of your child as the age sizes are for reference only.



We know how hard it is to choose the right colour while shopping online. That's why we encourage you to use Fabric samples listing in the Accessories to buy a colour sample you liked or contact us for help.

When you purchase an item without previous fabric samples order, you take responsibility for your colour choice.

If you are buying dresses through multiple orders, please note that colour may vary depending on fabric batch used.



Please contact us if you are ordering more than one dress or wedding accessory. To avoid disappointments with the fabrics and colour for your special occasion, please contact for assistance.
