As a small business, I buy fabric and dye goods in small batches so making color matches can be challenging. My two fabric weights often emerge from the dye bath with subtly different shading. Though the two garments may have slightly different shade values, they still look great together.

When ordering, please let me know if an exact shade match is essential. If I don't have it in stock, I can often match garment shades using fabric from the same dye bath. If I need extra time to cut and sew, I’ll let you know when to expect delivery.

If you are comfortable with garments having similar (but not necessarily exact) shades, there's no need to check the box when placing an order for two or more items of the same color.

Your size/color not in stock? If I have the fabric, I can make it to order. Learn more or send me an email to check availability.

It's crucial to measure yourself to ensure a good fit. Numerical sizes are guidelines but they vary widely from one maker to another. Click here for tips on taking your measurements.

Our sustainable hemp/Tencel fabric blend is easy to care for. To enhance its wonderfully supple hand and keep your clothes looking their best, follow these eco-friendly tips:

  1. Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
  2. We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
  3. Because the hemp content may produce wrinkles and develop a somewhat firm hand during laundering and air-drying, tumble your dry clothes in a warm dryer for a few minutes to relax wrinkles and soften the fabric's hand. (Because hemp softens with wear, this step becomes unnecessary as your garment ages.)
  4. Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
  5. If needed, touch up collars and hems with a hot iron. To prevent possible shine from a setting that's too-high, iron inside out.
  6. When traveling, roll up your Sympatico clothes then hang them up on arrival. A quick spritz with water will help eliminate wrinkles. (I find spritzing my craft fair inventory on hangers works like a charm for releasing wrinkles that develop during travel.) Hanging wrinkled items in a steamy bathroom is a great alternative to ironing also.

Thanks to hemp's anti-microbial properties you'll probably find that you launder your Sympatico wear less often, reducing the energy your clothes consume.

    Love these pants!

    Posted by Karen on 14th Aug 2018

    I recently bought a pair in plum. The fit is perfect and I have worn them a couple of times already. There are great for the Arizona summer heat. I love this fabric. It looks a lot like linen and just as comfortable. When I went to order they did not have my size in plum. I contacted Rose and she had a pair ready to put into inventory! So I was able to purchase them that same day. I also suggested other fabric colors to Rose, as I am a red head and prefer more "fall" colors. Rose was open to my suggestions. I look forward to ordering more items.

    I didn’t think I was going to like these pants as much as I do. I thought they might be baggy. But they aren’t! They fit closely throughout the hips even with the elastic waist. And, they are flattering. The grey color is nice - not too dark. The fabric feels luscious. I’m sure they will be cool in hot weather. They were true to size for me.

    Comfort and Stylish

    I enjoy the cut of these pants for comfort and ease of movement. They look cute with any blouse and summer shoes. The fabric is breathable and soft. I have three pairs! They are my favorite summer pants!

    comfortable and stylish

    Posted by Sara on 27th Apr 2017

    This spring I purchased a pair of Sympatico cropped pants in deep ocean blue. This was not my first piece of Sympatico clothing. I already have three tuxedo tops and other pieces of clothing that are perfect for my taste, body type and activities. As with the other Sympatico pieces of clothing in my closet, the cropped pants fit perfect. I am 5'4" and weight 114, with slim hips but a wide waist. The elastic at the waist of the pants is not too tight or uncomfortable but securely fixes the pants at my natural waist. The cloth is soft and drapes appropriately over my hips and washes well. I live in northern New Mexico now but moved here recently from humid Wisconsin where I wore Sympatico clothing during hot humid summers in comfort and style. I appreciate my Sympatico clothes just as much in the dry climate of the Southwest and expect them to be part of my daily wear for work, shopping, pilates class and group mediation. Thanks Sympatico!

    I love these cropped pants--perfect fit, very comfortable, wonderful breathable fabric that hangs well, great color that goes with just about everything. I also appreciate the rapid delivery through USPS--pants arrived just two days after I ordered them.

    I love Sympatico clothes..and found the pants style not comfortable. I think it was the tapered effect. I wish that another style was available. thanks
