hand-textured embroidered lambskin leather black dress or vest

This style of leather texturing is unique to the artist and is among her top recognizable looks. The painstaking process of embroidering leather to give it this amazing 3D texture is very complex and requires special tools and equipment, but the final result is worth every minute spent on the creation. The lambskin leather can be wiped down with water if necessary, it is durable and has a wonderful drape. This piece features full top to bottom button closure, and can be worn by itself as a dress or as a long vest over all kinds of options, from dresses to pencil skirts and pants, with or without sleeves underneath. Medium weight is perfect for fall. Sides in this one have stretchy viscose knit inserts to ensure a perfect, comfortable fit. Product code: Q9784

Spot clean with water, or dry clean.

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.
