Excellent dress and came exactly as described. I ordered with nursing access which was zippers on the side. Again, this is what I expected and works well. In use though, I realized that two zippers just inside the cape on either side would be ideal for nursing. I'm not ethnically Mennonite though, so perhaps that isn't traditional. Very comfortable and excellent, easy to clean fabric though. I wore mine camping as I'm experimenting with plain dress this summer. I thought camping would be a good test. It stayed fairly clean, washed well, and was really comfortable the whole trip. Thank you Mia!

About

Plain and Simple Apparel

Marilla's Apparel provides clothing and individuality to those on the plain journey. It is our belief that perfectly fitting and designed clothing is the true essence of plain dress: simple and fuss- free.

I love to provide my customers with items that they can afford and feel good about, knowing that all the garments from Marilla's Apparel are entirely USA made.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Why Marilla's? Marilla Cuthbert was the renown woman of the novel, Anne of Green Gables. Her stoicism and remarkable practicality was gently balanced with her tender heart, foresight, selflessness, and endearing dependability. So too is the modern day Plain woman.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

The dresses and aprons from Marilla's Apparel are entirely USA made. They are priced based on a standard labor cost and then account for the amount of material used. This means that you're not getting over-charged for a product that's already been tried and tested-- and loved.

Frequently asked questions

How do I take the measurements?

Send me a message with your email address to receive our measurement guide!

We have taken pictures of the measuring process and have explained in detail each measurement.
To receive this comprehensive measurement guide, simply send me a message with your email address!

Why do orders take several weeks to be fulfilled?

Orders generally take 6 weeks to complete. However, you may find the ship date is sooner than that!

The wait time is due to both the highly customized nature of the dresses/clothing offered and the fact that all of the work at Marilla’s Apparel is done by one person.
I frequently work with rush orders, and if you need an order of five items or less to be shipped out sooner, please contact me! I do my utmost to work within your deadlines.

Which color should I pick?

For those worrying about stains, I would first suggest choosing darker colors such as navy, black, brown, cranberry, purple, or forest green.
Trying to select the color that flatters you the most doesn’t have to be difficult. First of all, look through your current wardrobe. Most likely, there’s a certain blouse or dress you already own that really makes your face light up. If you can’t settle on a color that way, I suggest you experiment with holding different colored fabrics (scarves, hats, etc.) up to your face and examining the effect in a mirror. Ultimately, I will always suggest you select the color that makes you happiest. If yellow makes you smile, choose that!

Where did you purchase your boots? What brand are your boots?

The black boots pictured in the shop were purchased gently used a number of years ago. The brand is Enzo Angiolini, and they run narrow. For those wishing to purchase a similar pair, I have heard good reports about the boots from these brands:
American Dutchess Historical Footwear
Frye
Miss L Fire
Steve Madden
Born
For less expensive boots, I always suggest perusing ebay or etsy for used pairs.
