drop waist full maxi dress in hand-painted blues

This dress combines silk crepe for the body with soft cotton poplin for the skirt. The skirt is very full, almost full-circle, which gives the dress some weight and consequently, a nice 'swoosh' effect when you walk - truly makes you want to twirl and twirl in it. A large front pocket gives it a casual look and makes a good container for your phone. Product code: D8798

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.
