Very sweet, and beautifully made. If only I had more of a chance to wear it this year as winter was so fleeting, but it will be ready for next year!

Beautiful bloomers, soft and lovely. They look good both on their own, or over tights and I look forward to getting much wear out of them this winter. Thank you, Josie for making such beautiful clothing!

What a lovely dress this is! Josie has done a wonderful job in creating a dress that makes me feel warm and happy. She even added some pockets, so the cosy winter feel is complete. I'm very happy with this purchase, and I hope to be back to order more from FrancesBaker soon!

I truly can't express how incredible my dress is. Josie's love and talent can be seen in every stitch and it fits like a dream - soft and lovely and effortless. Even the packaging was thoughtful and sweet. Josie made the entire experience, from first message to first fitting, a wonderful process without stress or worry, and communicated well from the very first notes we sent back and forth. I truly can't say enough about Josie or her incredible work. I can't wait to wear this dress, and I'm so lucky to be able to wear it. <3 Thank you, Josie!

I always register my post within Australia and always have a shipping confirmation number that I can supply you with.

I send international mail by Registered Post International which provides a shipping confirmation number that I can supply you with. Frances Baker is not responsible for lost packages.

Please be aware that international orders can sometimes be delayed by customs inspection when coming into your country. I try to fill out my packages with as much accurate detail as possible to avoid excessive inspection times but I am not responsible for any delays due to customs as their actions and processing times are unfortunately beyond my control.
Custom fees - international customers may be liable for customs fees on receipt of goods. Please check with your local customs office and be aware that buyers are responsible for any customs import duties that may be imposed in their country.

Express Post:
If you would like something sent out right away or mailed by express post, it is essential to organise this with me before placing your order, as I can't always guarantee your order will be mailed out the same day otherwise. If you would like something mailed express I can add that standard charge to your invoice before you place your order.
