eco camo cashmere dress
Eco camo cashmere dress - Each piece is hand printed and unique. The eco printing process is unpredictable, I never know what
has worked until the next day as I unroll it. The weather, the time the plant is picked, and type of fiber all effect my results.
The cashmere sometimes has small holes that I have darned. No harsh chemicals are used in this process.
to care for this dress soak in cold water and wash with a mild soap.gently wring out excess water and lay flat, block dry, store in dark place as long exposure to the sun will fade the print. These prints should last for many washings. They will age well and slowly fade gracefully with proper care.
This dress is made from 3 vintage cashmere sweaters. each is eco printed with wild plants that I have gathered from my garden and the woods. staghorn sumac berries, ninebark branches, and black walnut leaves are some that I used. At first I was not happy with any of the sweaters than I put them together and they took on an almost leopard type print. this fascinated me. At first I made the dress with a full skirt for the bottom panel but it seemed too hippielike so I made it a straight pull over which is simple and modern and classic.
this dress is incredibily comfortable and easy to wear.
it will fit a small / medium. It has alot of stretch and give. It can be dressed up or down. ON SALE WAS 340 NOW 160
