'flowers in the ocean' silk crepe blouse with applique

A timeless addition to women's life in many different ways, flowers always bring fun, softness and feminine touch to outfits. In this casual top the artist added them both as applique and a cutout, finished with needlework. Painted by hand, this crepe de chine top is comfortable, cool to the touch, wrinkle resistant and has a great drape. Longer rounded back is great for casual styles. A deep V-neck adds sophistication to this casual piece you can enjoy throughout the year, by itself, layered over dresses or other tops and under jackets. Mixed fabrics are used for sleeve cuffs for yet another dimension. Product code: A2198

Very brief cold water hand wash, a few drops of mild detergent, always separately, spin in washer and dry on medium, or air dry and finish in dryer to soften. Also can be dry cleaned by mild methods, or dry cleaned in dryer at home with a store-bought kit. Do not use stain removers, spot treaters or bleach pens. Contact us for any advice, if needed.

All garments arrive to you freshly cleaned, unlike regular store-bought items, and are ready to wear.

Dry-cleaning is ok on most items but only if gentle methods are used and the cleaners are familiar with cleaning hand-painted delicate fabrics.

To freshen up any item that doesn’t need deep cleaning simply mist it with a water spray and put in the dryer on medium heat for about 15 min.

All garments can be hand washed. Wash each item separately, cold water only, minimal amount of detergent, and as briefly as possible, no soaking. The wash can be followed by a spin in the washer and dried on medium heat until dry. Knits should be hung-dried and when dry, finished in the dryer for a few minutes to soften.

Hand-pressing may be necessary 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.

For more tips and details please refer to the cleaning instructions card included with your package.
