Lovely shirt with a cute Dino motif. Great for spring/summer, love it!
I usually wash everything before I wear it, but I skipped that this time and wore this beautiful shirt right away. Thank god I did, because this way I got to have one perfect day with a perfect shirt. It looked so good, the fabric felt amazing and it fit perfectly and I felt amazing!
I washed at 30 degrees and air-dried, and it shrunk A LOT. Like 2 sizes, easily. Instructions say to stretch it gently while wet to regain shape, which I did, and I didn't get back shit. So, next round, I stretch a little more, and it ripped! And lost a button. It also says to iron while still damp to regain length. So on my second try I iron, through a cloth, as per instructions. Now I have crazy creases because how can I see that it's smooth through a cloth? I have other stuff going on, I can't get a degree in textiles to learn how to care for this shirt. It's still wet, so I wait until just damp, iron again. It's a little better now but nowhere near where it was when it first arrived. Plus I still need to sew on a button, and I'm so tired. It's not realistic for me to wait the perfect amount of time and then iron every time, I'm sorry, but as much as I love dinosaurs (very very much!), I can't change my whole life to revolve around this shirt's care.
I have gained weight over the last two years, so the only reason I buy new clothes is so I don't look like an idiot in way too small clothes, I have enough of those in the basement already.
