'flying over the fields' mixed silks tunic/dress

redone to top sold to Loua. Pure luxury of a top - or mini dress, this piece combines two most comfortable silk fabrics: semi-sheer chiffon on top, for comfort and ultimate breathability, and gloriously smooth mulberry silk for the rest. The two prints tell a story that gave it the name - subtle floral on top and an abstract butterfly print on the bottom. Hand-painted in shades of green and blue with a touch of rust and black print outline, it is a perfect spring and summer piece and is easy to match to a variety of bottoms. Currently cut as a xl/plus piece, it can be made to fit a smaller frame upon request. Can be worn as a tunic or as a mini dress over a liner as is (it has vents on the sides), or the vents can be sewn up if desired to not require a liner if worn as a dress, please ask. Lightweight and comfortable. Product code: E2845

Brief cold water hand wash, dryer OK.

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.
