Crepe de chine is the royalty of all silks with its stability, smoothness, durability, draping qualities, and how it absorbs the colours into the silk that presents such richness for the eye. All my wearable silk art starts with a white piece of fabric, that is handpainted, dyes set into the fabric by an intense steaming process for durability, and one can wash the fabric with no colour dispelling from the garment. These vibrant caftans are such a beautiful draping silk fabric, that lends itself to travel anywhere, and no ironing, for moisture keeps the silk crinkle-free. This silk lends itself to the change to the weather, for when cold it keeps one warm and when hot it keeps the body cool.This caftan can be worn over a dress, with pants, or leggings and it fits most sizes. It is a fabulous luxurious fabric that is fabulous for travelling, just put it in a room after a shower and any wrinkles will be diminished.
Silk has great for travelling for it is so lightweight, and easy to keep looking good all the time. Measurements:(length:23", width: 45" 3/4 sleeve). Hand wash silk; in lukewarm water with a few drops of dish soap soak for 1/2 then rinse in cold water and wring out excess water then shake to get the wrinkles out and hang to dry. If you want to press the silk, turn it inside out and iron on the hottest dial of the iron, for silk, loves heat, just don't leave the iron sitting on the silk, be sure to move it around to get all the creases out. This item is made of crepe de chine silk 18mm.
