patchwork fitted peplum vest or top

This patchwork top or vest is pure fun! Each piece has been meticulously chosen for shape, color and texture, like putting a complex puzzle together, resulting in an organic final piece that can be worn with just about anything, and underneath other jackets as well. Fitted through the waist, with extra chest allowance, it has a slightly flared bottom which would make it perfect for a very fitted hip-hugging look as well (please indicate the sizing requirements with the order for optimal closure placement). Features two staggered pockets in the front and one in back. You can bring out any of the colors included in this top with a different tank or shirt underneath, many options available. Light to medium weight. Incorporates vintage fabrics and some recycled pockets. Product code: M3453

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.
