'semi-sheer joy' distressed painted airy long dress and shrug set

This lightweight dress is pure joy, truly. Made out of open-weave semi-sheer European linen, it is cut in a way that will follow your body shape, wider toward the bottom for a flattering modern silhouette. The earthy, autumn-leaves themed colors are rich and deep, owing to the artist's signature distressed painting style. The neckline features intricately shaped sculptural accents, and on top in back there is a 3D flower-like applique that adds to the overall character or this playful, feminine dress. Of course, an interestingly shaped pocket in the front. Semi-sheer, so you will need a liner to wear underneath - shown here with a short plain black slip. Product code: L9791

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.
