"do not pre-wash" ?? Help, please.

I bought a little bundle of fat quarters to use to make another pillowcase dress for DD.  I opened it up the other night, and as I did, I actually read the wrapper that was bundling it together, and it said "do not pre-wash" on it. Have you ever seen this?  I don't understand why.

I'm making a dress - I need to pre-wash it!  That's all I know.  For a quilt or something like that, I never pre-wash, but a dress?  I don't know what to do if I don't pre-wash - won't it shrink?  It's cotton, just plain old cotton fabric - why would it tell me not to pre-wash it?
