Jacket - Silk-Linen "ripple" - Fuschia, lavender, and pewter

The unusual three-dimensional texture of this silk-linen provides substance for the swingy, A-line cut of this elegant jacket. Swirls of fuschia and lavender on a gentle pewter background. The contrast lapel, in matching colors, is silk ottoman - a rich, subtly-ribbed fabric which dyes beautifully! Front peplum slopes and flounces a bit; shaped hem, side slits. Techniques: monoprint, dye-painting, over-dye; lapel: screen print, monoprint, dye-painting, over-dye. Care: Dry clean only; steam iron if needed.
