bold colors black back empire waist bubble dress

From the Santa Fe Collection, this dress is comfortable, fun for wearing, easy for pairing, and definitely an attention grabber! Made out of cotton poplin stretch, it features hand-painted full bottom with built-in pocket-style openings. What's more, only the front has bold color, while the back is all black, making it a very flattering silhouette. Perfect with boots, under jackets or vests, so many possibilities! Sleeves have asymmetrical cuffs, and if wanted, can be rolled/pulled up. Rich colors of fallen leaves and earth beg it to be worn in the fall, although it is light to medium weight and can be worn in warmer months as well. Modifications are possible for length or width if necessary, please inquire. Product code: Q4781

Hand wash.

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.
  • Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.
