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.

    Easy to wear

    Posted by Kathleen Geiger on 26th Oct 2020

    Sympatico clothes are my go-to staples. I love the easy-going but put-together style. The company is environmentally conscious and hemp is an excellent renewable fiber source. The material breathes well and is comfortable to wear.

    Flattering fit

    Posted by Angela on 13th Nov 2018

    I bought the princess top in two shades, and I really love the fit. The mid-weight fabric doesn't cling, and the cut gives me an hourglass shape. The buttons are a lovely detail.

    Princess seams are flattering on everyone. Great fabric weight, beautiful cut and color. I haven't even worn it yet and I just bought another one. Quick delivery too.

    The cut and fit are perfect. This top also is good for layering. It goes with several things in my closet, so I couldn't be happier.

    Top Quality

    Posted by Roseanne Sabol on 24th Aug 2017

    Dear Rose ~ I just want you to know that I absolutely LOVE my Princess top in the purple/eggplant color. It's gorgeous. The fit is perfect and the attention to detail - both on the outside as well as inside - is so professional. I had to return my first one to you for a different size and it came back to me so fast. Your customer service is sterling. Thank you so much for all you do.

    An altogether splendid top.

    Posted by Marilyn Shadburne on 13th Jul 2017

    This top is lovely. The quality of the fabric is excellent. I'm a sewer and I respect the construction. The styling is flattering and luckily it fits perfectly. I will buy from Sympatico again.

    Perfect Princess in Plum Dressing or Casual

    Posted by Kathleen on 29th Jun 2017

    So great to have such a well-styled and comfortable (mid-weight) top with so many outfit options. Much needed to expand my wardrobe. Goes so very well with pieces purchased earlier, too.....seems to be the "code" of Sympatico! I am delighted with this top and other pieces I have. Love that these are designed and made in the USA. The service is personal and efficient!
