patchwork mosaic long vest or mini-dress

From the Mosaics Collection, this vest is a nice weight for fall, just enough without being heavy, and will work as a mini-dress as well with a changed closure. Features mosaic style appliqué over cotton poplin with a stretch for more comfort and a better fit. Large pocket is perfect for a phone, and the black base with dark colors make it an easy match to all your bottoms. Glorious hand-painted colors speak for themselves. A true art couture, this style requires a lot of planning and balancing to achieve just the right look. Great over dresses, by itself or over tanks or long-sleeve tops, perfect for layered styles as well. As most items, it can be customized for size and length or different closure if necessary - last picture shows it modified for a smaller size. Product code: F8217

Hand wash 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.
