Returns Policy

Please note most items are handmade to order and take time to be constructed just for you! Because of this, we are unable to accept order cancellations. We must be very strict on this, even if you have just placed your order and we have not shipped yet, even if you did not fully read our terms before placing your order. All items are non-refundable. The only exception is if we have sent an item that is flawed or damaged.

Size exchanges may be permitted provided garments are returned in new, unworn condition. Knickers and playsuits are excluded from exchanges unless flawed or damage upon arrival.  Please contact dottiesdelights@gmail.com for more information. ♥

Shipping Policy

Shipping Time
Please note most items are handmade to order and take time to be constructed just for you! In general, allow 1-3 weeks for made to order items to be constructed. This may occasionally be longer during high traffic periods:

Check current shipping times for Made to Order items here.

If the item you want is In Stock, order that option, as you will receive it more quickly! You can always email us to check the stock status of specific pieces you are interested in - just be sure to include size/color/style name of items! Please contact dottiesdelights@gmail.com for more information on special shipping requests.

Delivery Method
We generally ship using USPS.
Other carriers may be available (UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc). USPS Priority Mail shipping and above will include a simple gift box packaging; First Class shipments will be sent in a compostable mailer. We try to be as eco-conscious as we can!

We are not responsible for lost packages, and we are unable to call USPS to track down packages. We always try to ship out as fast as possible, but if you have a very hard deadline, please let us know.

International customers
We have added First Class International as a budget friendly option, however, please note this generally does not include full tracking information once it leaves the U.S. border. Also, first class delivery times can vary widely from weeks to months. We are not responsible for lost packages.

We highly recommend using Priority Mail or other carriers to ensure reliable tracking and delivery times. As far as customs and duties are concerned, we are a legitimate business and do not mark purchases as "gift" so please do not ask.

Design and/or Marketing Intern:

We are always open to internship applications on a continuing basis. Internships typically last one school semester and can be somewhat tailored to each individual's interests and skills. Areas may include: pattern development, design development, sample making, production basics, social media and newsletter maintenance and promotion, target market research, new stockist outreach, lookbook/line sheet development, etc. This is an excellent opportunity to work intimately with the designer and experience all aspects of the inner workings of a small independent brand. Knowledge of fashion history or intimate apparel a plus, but not mandatory. Must be enrolled or a recent graduate of a fashion programs or similar. Preference given to students that are looking for school credit.
