Print and sizing variations
All Parade clothing is hand sewn and printed, and variations may occur slightly with sizing or prints for this reason. We think variations in print are part of the charm, and we hope you agree! Please allow for up to 5% variation in sizing due to the nature of cutting and sewing clothing by hand.
Getting the right fit
We are not able to return washed or worn garments in regards to sizing issues.
All cotton shrinks - but organic cotton is not chemically treated, so will shrink slightly more than processed cotton. We allow for this in our designs, so our garments may look larger than non-organic garments before you wash them. Please ensure that you've checked our size chart, as babies do come in all sizes and age is just a guide. If in between, we always recommend sizing up.
Are there any specific washing instructions I should follow for organic cotton?
We recommend you wash cold and tumble dry low for best results and the least shrinkage. Conventional cotton apparel is generally treated with chemicals during finishing to reduce the shrinking effects of heat. Organic cotton is not chemically treated, so will shrink slightly more than processed cotton. We allow for this in our designs, so our garments may look larger than non-organic garments before you wash them. Shrinkage is worse for the lengths of the garments and is less noticeable in width.
Do not use bleach or harsh detergents on natural, organic cotton - it will cause fading and weakening of the fibres.
Will the dyes fade?
Eco-friendly dyes are just as long lasting as the harmful dyes used on conventional products. However, they will fade if powerful detergents or bleaching agents are used.
Because there are no chemical color fixatives used in our clothing, please do not mix dark colors with light ones for the first few washes. For the first wash, if you add ¼ cup of vinegar to the final rinse, this will help to set the color and resist fading or bleeding.
Tip! - when washing prints, you can turn them inside out during the first few washes to help lock in the colour.
That being said, organic cotton is a natural fiber and still prone to break down from external forces. Knees and elbows are not reinforced, and will wear when in repeated contact with rough surfaces - for example, during the crawling stage. Interlock cotton may wear in the knees if baby is crawling on hard surfaces. During this time it is recommended to use kneepads or legwarmers or something similar over the knees to protect your cotton garments.

I got this doll for my sister’s baby but my sister loves it a lot more than I expected. I guess I need to get a new one for the actually baby girl
