This is 100% heavy stone washed rayon crepe. The stone washing softens up the heavy crepe giving it an incredible "hang". What a great color this is! This is a true desert sand so will go with just about anything. This color does NOT have the yellowy undertone that beige sometimes has. But that's not all. It's pieced and has several different textured pieces too.
This starts with a simple scoopy neckline and buttons down the front with pewter star looking buttons. The main middle panels on either side of the buttons have some fabulous flowers and leaves embroidered vertically. This is done in the same sandy beige so it's gorgeous, yet downplayed and tasteful. These two panels taper as it goes down to the bottom. It is pieced in a VEE.
The side panels are sort of like a matte jacquard-- same washed crepe but it has a floral texture to it. These panels are also tapered....and because of this tapering of the center and side panels, there is an inset chikan triangle set in on either side at the bottom. I'm showing you a close up of the piecing so you can see how fabulous this is. At the bottom of the front pieceing, there is some fabulous trim across the front and then the ruffle, which is a heavier georgette with a sort of "stripe" in the fabric.
The front is longer than the back.
The back has 3 plain panels-- one large middle one and a smaller one on either side of that. Ties on either side of the middle panel towards the bottom so you can cinch it or wear in a simple knot. The back bottom has a straight cut.
Short sleeves are plain.
This is one of the companies you can count of for quality-- all the piecing and seaming is double stitched. Their work is always top notch.
Again, this is natural rayon. This type feels like really heavy stonewashed crepe. Like most of these hippie pieces though, you'll want to hand wash in cool water and hang to dry. A warm iron touches them up beautifully.
***MEASUREMENTS *** PLEASE NOTE I TAKE ALL MY MEASUREMENTS WITH THE GARMENT FLAT AND MEASURED ACROSS THE FRONT (unless otherwise noted)
Bust: 20" from underarm to underarm at the top seam across the front. But seriously, I know this seems big but they really need to be roomy to look right.
Bottom: Before where the ruffle starts is 22" across
Length: 24" from the shoulder seam down the side on the shorter pieces and 26" on the longer front parts. co2613beig
