'violet attraction' heavy cool-touch silk maxi dress

Part of the artist's latest heavy silk collection, this dress, like the others in this collection, is a most pleasant piece to wear for many reasons: super comfortable, with superior drape and movement due to the weight of 8ply silk (the best that exists), cool to the body, believe it or not, breathable, with a flattering shape and vibrant hand-painted design! Truly a not-to-miss piece, if you never tried dresses of this kind, now is the time. The sizing is not mentioned for a reason - it is shown on size small 5'5", but can be made longer, shorter, roomier or smaller upon request, these options are always a possibility with the one-of-a-kind pieces. The dress balloons toward the bottom, making for a flattering silhouette and maximizing fabric movement with every step you take. Built-in deep pockets are fun to use, too. Many different shrugs, cardigans and jackets options are available, just a few shown here, please ask if you are interested (including a matching shrug shown, available separately). Also great for layering - you can wear tunics and vests as a top layer. Washable and wrinkle resistant. Product code: L7007


A-line, ballooning toward the bottom, asymmetrical, built-in side pockets, hand-painted.

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: tweak able between x-small and large, possibly x-large, please inquire about your sizing requirement.

Heavy silk crepe

Purple, violet, wine, white, black, gray.

Brief cold water hand wash, dryer ok, pre-shrunk.

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.
