long open silk crepe patchwork vest in grayish pine green

This is a fun top layer to wear with pants or skirts or over dresses too. The body is made out of thick 4ply crepe de chine silk, soft and pleasant to the touch, partially cut on the bias in the back so it has a nice drape. The slightly grayish deep green is complimented by a few lighter shades in other silks, differing both in texture and in type. Large fun pocket with a touch of brick color completes the look. Open style, no closure - if you have to have a closure, please ask. Product code: A4417

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.
