Sizing for our clothing
Our designs are created with different fits in mind, from loose & draping to fitted & cozy. I.E. a Medium sized top would fit a woman with a 36" bust or smaller. If you are in between sizes, you can choose whether you want something more fitted or more loose. I.E. the layering tank, you can opt for a smaller more fitted version OR a looser more layering version. Our designs are created to be worn both ways! Custom sizing is an option on everything. You can give your measurements to the seamstress and she will make the design specifically to fit your body.
"If you need anything different than what the listing states, please choose the custom size option in the listing. It's all about YOUR preference! I'd be happy to customize a garment to fit how you would like!"- Katrina Kelley, Seamstress / Owner
Small Batch Design;
Our designs are offered in multiple sizes yet each piece has its own unique characteristics that makes it one of a kind. There are slight variations in each piece making each & every shirt, skirt or dress unique. We are not cookie cutters, but artisans. We create inventory in small batch fashion, making 2-3 sizes at a time, as well as custom sizes. Small batches enable us to waste less and run a more efficient sustainable company.
Please note, the custom size clothing is made to order and takes 1-2 weeks. Pre-made items ship next business day. This is an option on most items in the shop. There is a drop down option on the item pages. If you have ANY questions, PLEASE feel free to contact the seamstress. If you have questions on details past the listing information, She'd be glad to discuss it with you.
How we treat the fabrics & your new clothing...
Nothing but the best for our fabric!
Here at Amphitrite Studio, we pre-wash all incoming fabric with SoulShine Soap Company's all natural, made in Maine, lemongrass laundry butter & lavender laundry powder.
Then after a design is sewn, it is washed again using only one of these products. If ever we find something with a stain on it, we use their Laundry Stain Stick!
The scent is soft and inviting, almost unnoticeable, perfect for those with allergies and/or skin sensitivities.
SoulShine Soap is handmade, in small batches, in Maine. They do not use dyes, parabens, sulfates or other ingredients you can’t pronounce. They use only coconut, olive and certified sustainably harvested palm oil along with pure essential oils and botanicals.
What good is the amazing benefit of an all-natural chemical free fabric, if you’re just going to wash it in chemicals?
Love your skin... through your clothing!
