Silk Caftan Robe, Vintage Butterfly Design
Silk Caftan Duster Robe with Vintage Butterfly Design
This silk mesh cover-up is perfect for any occasion. A one-of-a-kind gift for the holidays, or any day. The cap sleeves lightly cover the upper arms, providing discreet cover for those who wish it.
I printed silk mesh with a digitally altered image of my mother’s favorite wallpaper. After printing, the silk was steam set for three hours and washed for color fastness. Hems were over lock stitched with light green thread and hand beaded with pink beads.
Measures 30″ across the back and front. 35″ from shoulder, front and back.
Perfect for any season, silk is light for summer and provides warmth in the winter. What a versatile and unique gift

Washable. To prolong life of silk, hand wash in cold water and white vinegar. Do not soak. Hang in shade to dry.
Machine washing okay, but not recommended. If machine washing, use a mesh bag. 1/2 cup white vinegar + 2 teaspoons salt works better than any laundry detergent. http://theheartysoul.com/diy-natural-laundry-detergent/
