Many of Carly's Dresses are gracefully designed using the natural drapery of her fabrics of choice, some styles are sized OSFA , 8-18/20 or One Size - this means the garment will be a very loose shape designed to be worn with or without a belt. Depending on your body size & frame one of these designs may look oversized and very floaty with often a wide neck that eases off the shoulder. We ask that you choose carefully when purchasing an oversize garment, please keep in mind it is all about the drape of the fabric. We will not refund if the garment you have chosen is too big when it has been labeled OSFA or One Size. We are happy to exchange for another style - in some cases we may be able to downsize a garment at request depending on the design.

Many of the fabrics Carly uses for her designs are delicate, loose weave or very fine. Carly Harris will not take responsibility for pulling  and perishing or general wear and tear of any garments. It is important to remove all jewellery and shoes before trying on.Please take care when wearing a garment of delicate fabric.

Often her range of fabrics include Rayon and Viscose along with Silks and Polyester, every fabric is allocated to certain designs allowing for movement and room around the body.

**Carly often uses up cycled fabrics and any imperfections in the garments are part of the history of the fabric and garments are priced accordingly.

**Some colours of fabrics may vary from photographs,all our clothing is photographed in natural light to capture the colour as close as possible.
