vintage cotton moire distressed textural indigo vest

The texture of this very rarely found cotton moire fabric is amazing - the little 'ridges' throughout give it such a three-dimensional look and feel, which has been enhanced by a subtle distressing in the shades of mint and purple over indigo. A row of gorgeous similarly textured buttons enables you to button it up all the way up, or any step in between. Asymmetrical large collar can be stood up for more drama or folded over. Extra large pocket can probably replace your purse! Generous A-line, flattering and fun. Meant either as oversized piece (has extra large arm holes too) or can be more true to size as well. Shown on two heights here, 5'2" and 5'5". Product code: Y5099


A-line, large armholes, large asymmetrical collar, asymmetrical button closure, large pocket. Unlined.

Note: Each piece is available only in the size mentioned, but modifications to change the fit are always possible (longer, shorter, smaller, roomier, etc.), often with just button repositioning and often at no extra charge, so please ask.

Each piece is designed, constructed, hand-painted, distressed and embellished entirely by the artist, from start to finish.

There are always matching pieces and accessories. They just may not be listed yet, so please inquire if you cannot find something to complete the outfit.

Size: one size through about XL, please check measurement - as buttoned it will fit chest up to 44", but buttons can be moved to accommodate 46" chest; 29" long.

Cotton, heavier weight.

Indigo, mint, purple.

Hand wash or gentle 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.
