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.

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.

    A new look

    Posted by Paula on 13th Jun 2019

    I love my first curved skirt. It’s a good length for me, modest and comfortable but not frumpy. It’s also got plenty of room in the hips and thighs without being bulky. And the slanted kick slit in the back is darling. I especially like the pale grey color. It’s good for summer.

    Perfect fit

    Posted by Rosa on 20th Feb 2019

    I ordered a rose colored skirt and matching tunic top. The color is exquisite. The Fit of the skirt is perfect with Roomy pockets that dont bulge. Beautiful and practical. This is what clothes should be.

    I love my new Curved Skirt

    Posted by Rebecca on 30th Jul 2018

    My new Curved Skirt is a Medium in Graphite color. It arrived a bit rumpled in the box, but with a light touch of the iron it smoothed out into a lovely, supple garment. The color goes with so many of my tops: blue, various greens, shades of purple. I am glad Rose recommended that I purchase the Medium, rather than the Large (which matched my measurements more on the Size Chart). It fits perfectly. I love the pockets!!

    Beautiful Skirt

    Posted by Elizabeth on 27th Jul 2017

    I love this skirt. I ordered it in the grey, medium. I am 5'8", about 160 lbs for reference. It is very comfortable and flattering. I love it especially because it doesn't flare out much and is comfortably loose, with a good length (reaches a few inches below the knees on me). The clothes marketed to my age group are not great these days (I am 25) and not to mention are not good for the environment. This is a great piece for those of you minimizing your wardrobe and choosing quality over quantity.

    The seaming details are very nicely done. I especially appreciate the pockets.
