Nice material. Looks just as pictured. It was a bit smaller than anticipated. I moved the button to the right and it fits better now.

About

Sandmaiden Loungewear and wool knits

Garments made from natural fibers ground us more intimately to our selves and our environment, providing more comfort and beauty than synthetic materials. The fabrics in the Sandmaiden collection are 90% natural with about 10% modern, functional, fashion forward content like lycra or and soft wood pulp based fibers.

I appreciate your patience with the process of having your order produced, I know it is chosen to wear or give at a certain occasion and time is always of the essence. I typically do not accept rush orders because it would mean pushing others orders back but occasionally when we are working on samples I can do it.

Your order will stay in que in the order it was received, on the Monday after your order it will be sorted with the others from the previous week based on both date and color. I cut 10 pieces every day, usually in two colors after that I bring them to the serger and assemble everything. I have one part time helper who will help with a lot of the finishing under my guidance and also does the shipping.

Over the year the average turn around time is 10 days but during peak seasons or for orders with more than one color it will be more like 14 days.

We use a shipping software platform called Ship Station, it’s automatically imports the orders from Etsy and makes it very easy for us to print a label directly from the information provided on the order. Ship station even notifies you through your email address with the tracking number when it ships, it also updates your Etsy order with the tracking number. You can find your updated invoice by clicking through the link at the top of this page or look for the email.

I use the United States Postal Service to ship all of the packages, they are usually dropped off at the station the day after the label is printed because of limited hours at my local station. Orders within the USA will be shipped priority post and take 1-3 days to arrive. International orders are different.

International customers please make sure you go over the shipping policy’s in my shop. There is tracking to Canada which takes 2-3 weeks but no tracking to any other country unless it is sent express. Express shipping can be purchased as an add on to your order for $30.00. International orders over about $600.00 will be shipped priority with tracking. If an order does not include tracking or insurance you can expect to receive it in 2-3 weeks, occasionally if it doesn’t show up it will usually end up back with me after 3 months with an undeliverable address.

Every country has different policies on duties and vats, there is a chance you will have to pay up to 30% depending on your countries laws and what they decide to do at customs. Usually this does not happen which is why I do not charge up front but it can so please be prepared for that.

Thanks again! Much love and appreciation,
Amanda from Sandmaiden.

    I created Sandmaiden 7 years ago after working in the fashion industry for 10 years in Vancouver as a single mom, so many suits, boots and shoes and busy days later I yearned for pretty, romantic pajamas in delicious colors and exquisite textiles

Sandmaiden was created for women like me, women who appreciate something beautiful and comfortable to put on as a means of transporting themselves from the business of the day into a place of joy and rest. I believe that garments made from natural fibers ground us more intimately to our selves and our environment, providing more comfort and beauty than synthetic materials. The fabrics in the Sandmaiden collection are 90% natural with about 10% modern, functional, fashion forward content like lycra or and soft wood pulp based fibers.

My experience after 7 years of doing this is that there is a 2% chance orders will not fit the first time for reasons that run the gamut, this chance is greatly reduced by following the instructions in the sizing chart below and by choosing a style that you already know works for you. Please allow for the possibility of having your garment hemmed or altered to fit you after ordering, I make them on the long and large side to be safe.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Upon receipt of payment your order will be crafted within a the promised time frame, see the announcements on the front page for current turn around times but usually 1-2 weeks. Please allow an extra 2-3 days for delivery in the USA and 2-3 weeks internationally.

I appreciate your patience with the process of having your order produced, I know it is chosen to wear or give at a certain occasion and time is always of the essence.

Your order will stay in que in the order it was received, on the Monday after your order it will be sorted with the others from the previous week based on both date and color. I cut about ten pieces every day including lots of samples, usually in two colors after that I bring them to the serger and assemble everything. I have one part time helper who will help me with a lot of the finishing on the sewing machines, she will also package the shipments.

Over the year the average turn around time is 10 days but during peak seasons or for orders with more than one color it will be more like 14 days.
Shipping
USA: USPS priority post with confirmation number 2-3 days. Orders over $250.00 will be shipped with signature confirmation

CANADA: parcel post with confirmation and tracking 10-20 days

International: USPS parcel post with confirmation only (no tracking) 10-20 business days. Orders over about $250.00 will be shipped priority post (5-10 days) *with* tracking.

International customers please note that your package has to clear customs in your country which can create a delay in delivery and may be subject to duty charges that are your responsibility to pay. I don't charge duties and taxes up front because more often than not the packages will pass through customs with no charges.

Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the custom and intimate nature of the clothing in this shop I have strict and limited return and exchange policies. If you are not sure of sizing and are hoping to order something that can be returned or exchanged please order something ready to ship from the drop down menus.

"Made to order" or "Custom" are considered final sale items. We will in some cases exchange those items for store credit at www.sandmaiden.com for something ready to ship if it absolutely does not work for you.

Panties and sets with panties are final sale items, no exceptions.

Customized sizing, colors or lengths outside of what I offer in the listing are final sale items.

Ready to ship items excluding panties or sets with panties can be fully refunded excluding shipping charges if posted back with an RA#, the original invoice, in the original conditon within one week of postal receipt.

Please contact me through the etsy convo I send out with your order for an address and RA# to send returns to.

Refunds and Exchanges will take 2-4 weeks to process.

******************SWIMWEAR POLICIES*********************

Swimsuits are exchangeable or refundable if received in original condition and tried on over panties. Please try your suit on when you receive it over clean undergarments and decide if it fits you, if not you can return it as long as it's posted back to me within one week and in the original condition. Please contact me via etsy convos to obtain a return authorization. Suits that come back either not in the original condition, with odors or stains or without an authorization will be returned back to the sender.

A ten percent restocking fee will apply on made to order items, the restocking fee will not apply to ready to ship items.

*************************************************************************

thank you for respecting my policies, I've given them a lot of thought!

Peace,
Amanda
Additional policies and FAQs
Made to order in this shop means that I will take your measurements and slot them into one of my sizes or half sizes. Often I will be able to make top and bottom different sizes or accommodate different cup size to body size. "Made to Order" in this shop does not mean I make a new pattern with each order or promise to tailor to exact measurements. I try to design garments that will shift with your body and fit a variety of body types and sizes to fit my mail order business.

The length of the garments can be adjusted by your height but keep in mind that every body is different, a simple camisole is going to hit at two different places on two different people of the same height and different body types. The sleeves of robes are another example of something that will fit differently on someone of the same height but a different body type. Please be flexible about the length of your garment, I try to make them on the long side to be safe but it will never be the exact length it appears in the images.

Measurements that might be required are below, please note this is not the finished measurement of the garment, only body measurements.

Please note I will not use measurements that I don't ask for.

Height: for chemises or pants

Bust: fullest part (not bra band size)

Under bust: directly under the bust

Waist: narrowest part

Low Hip: Fullest part about crotch level, very important!

Inseam: for pants have someone measure you from the crotch to the floor if you're very concerned about length. Denim size is often not a good measurement to go by.

For Bras and styles with cups: full bust and under bust without a bra on.

General size guide (very general):

XS= dress size 0/2, bust 33, waist 25, low hip 35,
S= dress size 4/6, bust 34, waist 27, low hip 37,
M= dress size 8/10, bust 37, waist 30, low hip 40,
L= dress size 12/14, bust 40, waist 33, low hip 43,
XL = dress size 16/18, bust 43, waist 36, low hip 46,
XXL = dress size 18/20 bust 46, waist 39, low hip 49

Not all the styles in this shop are available in all sizes

You may also include your garment size for cross referencing purposes.
