I find so much joy and comfort in dying these amazing silks with the plants.
This slip was botanically dyed with all of the gorgeous flowers shown in the photos - I believe they are marigolds, roses and peonies. I am calling it the flower power slip.Some believe the energy of the plant matter is infused into the silk. These are extra infused with love as they were flowers from my dear friend Jordan's wedding!
The details and care: The 100% silk known as Charmeuse Silk, from the French word for female charmer, is a lightweight fabric woven with a satin weave, in which the warp threads cross over four or more of the backing threads. These float threads give the front of the fabric a smooth, shiny finish, whereas the back has a dull finish. I personally washed + pretreated each one carefully to make sure it is colorfast in cold water. I suggest gentle cycle with cold water and with a pH neutral soap for the longevity of the color and silk. Hang to dry or air fluff no hear - It can also be steamed or ironed on the lowest setting, or a silk setting, inside out is best.
Sizing: This is a one of a kind read to ship piece. SIZE MEDIUM. Please refer to the size chart photograph for measurements. I am 5ft 4 inches, usually a size 4-6 dress / 36 C or B - I am wearing a size MEDIUM in the photos.
Color: I tried my best to capture but every monitor or mobile display has a different capability to display colors!
This is a one of a kind ready to ship piece of wearable art!
