Cherry velvet dresses are super easy to care for. With minimal fuss, our high-quality cotton dresses will last you for years. They don’t shrink or fade and are so timeless they can be worn over and over. You don’t need to save them for a special occasion!
To give you the official low down on care, here are the steps:
Care of Cotton Dresses
- Machine Wash, gentle cycle on cold or warm (separate the colours….so no RED socks, please).
- Hang to dry
- While still wet, smooth out the wrinkles.
Yep, that’s it. It’s worth spending a few minutes on #3. Taking the time to smooth out the wrinkles after hanging it up will go a long way toward being iron free! Smooth the collar, put your hands in the pockets, run your hand along the hem until it’s hanging straight.
If you’re going somewhere special or your dress has come fresh out of the box, go ahead and iron it with steam on a cotton setting.
When it’s time to hang up your dress for another night, be sure to give it a little room in your closet so it can hang freely. That way when you are ready to put it on again it will be crease free and ready to go when you are!
Wear your dress!
It’s very important to take your dress out and wear it whenever possible. You’ll want to accessorize in a way that’s appropriate to the destination although not having a destination in mind is perfectly alright. You may illicit wistful stares and long lingering looks when wearing your dress. This is quite normal. You may also be approached by other women demanding to know where you found your dress. Just send them our way and we will look after the rest. Don’t forget to smile and say “Thanks!”.
