    Not trying to sound dumb but on the new measurements what is the sweep?

    • Z. Pearson says:

      Hi Devon,

      Thanks for your question! Sweep is the circumference of the bottom hem of the garment. It’s measured by laying the garment flat, measuring the bottom hem from edge to edge, and then doubling that number.

    Why don’t you have smaller sizes for petite women?

    • Elaine Lakeside says:

      Hi Beth – We perform numerous tests to determine the items carried in our catalogs. Based on the results of these tests, the most popular colors, designs, sizes, initials etc. are made available to our customers. Although the item you are inquiring about is not available at this time, it may be available in the future. We apologize for any inconvenience.
