All of the options below, are still the same dress, just with some variations to give you more options when it comes to fit and price.
• Lined w/ Princess Seams: Doubled soft stretchy brown cotton fabric body, with princess seams and top stitching. This one is incredibly warm, and is the one shown in the photos. This dress will keep you warm even in freezing temperatures. The princess seams take a lot of love and care to make and top stitch, which is the reason this is our priciest version. If you'd like to see this version in brown, see here: https://elvenforest.com/produc...
• Single Layer w/ Princess Seams: Same as the princess seam version, just with a single layer of brown fabric. This one is still warm, but not quite as warm as the first option that is lined. It still has the princess seams, which add unique details to this piece.
• Lined w/ Fit and Flare Skirt: This one is the one shown in the photos, solid top with fit and flare skirt. This is a great option if you want to get this dress style, but don't need the princess seams. It is very warm since it is doubled on the top and arms. The skirt is single layer.
• Single Layer w/ Fit and Flare Skirt: This is our most affordable option. This style is the same as the one shown, fit and flare seams, single layer, to try and get this price down for you all who want this dress and don't need those extra seams or the extra warmth of the lining.

Elven Forest Creations offers conscious and uniquely crafted apparel and your purchases from us support a wonderful team of women. We put a lot of love into these clothes and because all of our designs are made by hand and made to order, orders take some time to process.
Our orders are handmade with love when you order and our sewing time varies based on the seasons. Please allow an average of 3-4 weeks to complete before shipping (please allow up to 6-8 weeks during high volume times).
If you need something sooner than that, or by a certain date, please contact us before buying, as we can usually accommodate rush orders or take care to deliver by a certain time.
• Sustainable Packaging •
We love keeping our business local, ethical, and sustainable. We use eco-friendly packaging, which is either biodegradable or recycled/recyclable. We send our clothing out in mailer bags made from recycled materials and also is 100% biodegradable. This means that once it is thrown away, it will decompose completely, leaving no trace behind. The tissue paper we use is recycled from other paper, as well as banana and palm leaves and can be recycled again. And the yarn used to wrap your creations is pretty enough to look beautiful braided into hair or saved for later and used to wrap a present for a friend. <3
• Domestic Orders •
Custom Shop: Once finished, all orders in the United States are shipped Priority Mail Or First class mail, depending on weight (both are 2 to 5 day delivery depending on your location). Orders within the USA come with tracking numbers, which we will email to you when we ship your order.
Premade shop: If you have purchased a premade and ready to ship item (noted in the title of your item), it will go out in the mail the following Tuesday. If you need it sent sooner than that or want to upgrade to faster, express, or overnight shipping, please send us a message before buying to see what's possible.
• International Orders •
All packages outside of the United States are shipped First Class International Mail (time varies by which country that you are in but usually takes between 1-2 weeks). It comes with a very basic tracking number that your country may use, depending on your country and how much their mail synchs with US mail. If you want a true tracking number on an international order, please discuss this with us in advance so we can set up a custom listing for you. We can not take responsibility for lost or stolen packages. If you want to upgrade, let us know and we can add insurance to your package.
We love our international customers! Please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs. If required by your country, you are responsible for paying their customs charges, if any. We wish this were different and are very grateful for our international supporters.
Our orders are custom made, and are hand made for you after you order, to your size, color choice, (and measurements, if you give them to us). So we do not do normal returns and exchanges. However, we do tailor to perfection! If you give us your measurements upon ordering we guarantee perfect fit, and if anything is not perfect, please let us know within 5 days of receiving your package. We will tailor it to perfection for you free of any charge.
Alternately, if you have made a mistake in your measurements that you gave us upon ordering, or gave us an incorrect size without specific measurements, that is A-ok. We will tailor it for you at minimal cost, based on how long it takes to sew.
If you simply feel the design is not for you, let us know, we take partial returns with a 30% restocking fee on a case by case basis. As a small business, it is difficult for us to absorb the cost of a garment made exactly to one persons specifications.
Because our clothing is made custom, and our size charts are very accurate, it is very rare to have an issue, but if there is, rest assured, we will do everything in our power to make it perfect for you, as your experience with us is our top priority.
