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.

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.
