Feel Confident

For me the whole reason behind designing Zilpah Tart garments is to make women look good and feel confident. I love using beautiful colours and patterns through my prints, and shapes that fit and flatter the body.  One of my favourite sayings is ‘Be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons.’  That’s what Zilpah Tart is about.

         “I have 3 dresses now and I love them all.  So pretty and feminine and make any size look great    and feel confident.  Thanks for your effort, and I am so happy and proud to be buying and supporting Australian made.” – Monika NSW


Feel Comfortable

Stretch jersey means you can move freely and unrestricted, staying comfortable all day.  There’s time  for discomfort!

               “They’re all just too beautiful and by far the most comfortable dresses ever!” Connie QLD 



Easy Care

We’re all busy.  I know I don’t have time for clothes with picky washing instructions and I’m sure you don’t either.  Simple throw them in the washing machine with everything else.  They dry quickly and best of all they don’t need ironing!

“These dresses are like wearing a beautiful piece of art.  My dresses are comfortable, flattering, easy to wash and hang out to dry and are unique.  I get compliment after compliment as to how lovely I look each time I wear them.”  – Verna NSW


Great For Travel

No creasing means you can roll them up in a ball and throw them in your suitcase, ready to wear at the other end.  They are also light weight and wont take up much room in your luggage.  Perfect for business trips or holidays.

          “No ironing!  I hate ironing and love that I can chick these in a suitcase when I travel and look great at the other end.” – Johanna, Melbourne



Versatile designs that you can dress up or down to suit your occasion.  Add a jacket and wear to work, add sandals on the weekend, or add some heals and jewellery for a wedding, party or event. 

“I’ve never been someone that loves the way I look, but part of my job is to appear in public – and your dresses make me feel fabulous.  I’m crazy about them.”  – Ginger Gorman, Canberra



How do I choose my best size?

Check our size chart for your best size. Because the fabric is very stretchy, the designs tend to be fairly free fitting and will stretch to fit the body.  Many customers are able to wear two sizes comfortably eg.  a size 10 and 12.  I receive a lot of inquiries for size advice from women who normally buy both say 12 and 14 and are unsure which size to select.  My advice is to choose the 12 if you prefer a firmer fit, or a 14 if you would prefer a not so firm fit.  And as always, if you would like some advice about sizing, feel free to send me an email at info@zilpahtart.com.au

Can I exchange it if I find it is not the right size?

Yes!  I am more than happy to exchange your purchase for you if you find it’s not quite the right size.  Once the incorrect size is returned, I will make the correct size for you.  Send me an email if you need further information. 

Are the dresses easy to care for?

Yes!  Simply throw them in the wash with everything else.  They don’t need ironing and dry quickly. 



About our Prints

All of the exclusive fabric prints are designed by the Designer, Yumi Morrissey.  She takes photographs of the places and things that inspire her design and turns them into beautiful, fun, digital patterns.  These prints tell stories and create connections to the women who wear them.  For more information about the prints click here.

The Wildflower Print was created in collaboration with local Canberra Florist, Fiona of Peony n Pearl.  The print is designed using a photograph of Fiona’s beautiful wedding bouquets.
