Special Care Instructions for Dresses with Darker Colors

by Eva St. Clair January 24, 2017 1 min read

Here's how to keep your dresses with darker background colors looking fresh and bright!

  1. Turn it inside out before you wash it. The friction from being in the washing machine causes tiny fibers to break loose, which can give the fabric a gray tinge.
  2. Wash the dress in cold water using Woolite Darks, with a boost from Clorox 2 Darks & Denim.
  3. Put the dress in the dryer, but set it to "Damp Dry" so that it's still a little wet when it comes out.
  4. Hang it and let it dry completely. Extra hint: the solid color fabrics shrink easily in the dryer. If you pull gently to stretch it while it's still a little wet, it will relax closer to its original size. 

Ta Da!

About the Designer - Carrie Cantwell

I’m an illustrator, surface designer and educator based in Atlanta, GA. I live with my boyfriend and our three rescue kitties, who very often make it into my art, especially the two black cats.

I feel very comfortable creating art for kids, because I'm really a kid at heart. I love cute animals and bright colors. I find it particularly satisfying to distill complex concepts into simple shapes that are stylized but easily recognizable.

Sienna Farr was one of Princess Awesome's first models, before our Kickstarter, before we were much more than a dream and a few dresses made of tee shirts and quilting material. She died in a fire that also seriously injured her mother on August 11, 2023, aged 13.
