Product Description

The Sissy dress is an all-time favourite Apolina style. What makes this such a popular dress is the easy voluminous silhouette making it both comfortable for play and movement. This dress is really one to run and jump about in! Sissy has a sweet retro smock silhouette and is intended to be worn short and ‘doll-like’. Inspired by vintage bandanas, this striking bandana floral print border features a cream design set against the warm ‘mud’ base. We love the contrasting hand smocking at the neckline which gives this style its beautiful yet understated charm.
This style has a button fastening at the back neck for ease of dressing.
Handwashing is recommended.

Measurements are approximate:
2-3 years. Dress length is 49cm.
3-5 years. Dress length is 55cm.
5-7 years. Dress length is 61cm.
7-9 years. Dress length is 70cm.

Made from 100% Cotton (printed).

Made in India.

About The Brand+-

Apolina

Apolina was born out of a desire to create a more authentic style, something exciting yet nostalgic; not a passing trend but a modern bohemian range with longevity and a sense of craft.
Apolina is designed in England, but inspired by travel and the natural world.
Traditional handicrafts from many different cultures serve as the starting point for all of their pieces. Scandinavian, Mexican, American and Eastern European folk art particularly inspire the beautiful embroidery designs. Apolina's colour palette looks to unusual colour combinations found in nature. The relaxed silhouettes are designed mindfully to ensure children are comfortable and able to play freely in their clothing as well as ensuring an increased wear-time.
With a focus on highlighting traditional Indian craftsmanship, Apolina works with a small family-owned, and run, Indian manufacturer, who employ equal numbers of women and men (unusual for this industry). Ethical trading and production practices are strictly adhered to and workers are not only paid a fair wage, they are also treated as members of the extended family. India is a country of rich historical craft and embroidery skills are passed down through families.
Each item is unique due to the hand finishing of the garment and styles are produced in limited numbers through 'small batch' production.
The styles are seasonless and have been designed to be layered up or dressed down depending on the weather. With an aim to encourage minimum waste and to help remove the idea of disposability in fashion. Apolina imagine each piece will be passed down to younger siblings and then kept by mothers as a reminder of cherished childhood memories and in the hope of being passed to grandchildren as future heirlooms.
Made in India.

Sizing+-

‘Small’ should span age 2-3 years
‘Medium’ will span ages 3-5 years
‘Large’ will fit age 5-7
‘Extra Large’ is aimed at 7-8 years.
Age sizes are based on average heights and weights for children in the UK. These may not be the same for children in different parts of the world. If in doubt, see the measurements provided in the individual descriptions for each style.

Product Care+-

We strongly recommend hand-washing all garments. Due to the intricate nature of the embroidery, it will be best preserved when carefully hand-washed and hang dried. We know that for busy Mamas hand-washing is not always possible - you are able to put the garments through a delicates machine wash on a cool temperature from time to time, but this will increase the ‘wear’ on the garment. Always separate out strong colours. Do not tumble dry. Safe to iron on a cool setting, taking care of prints and embroideries.
