Some items that end up unworn on thrift store racks are a crying shame given the quality fabric, construction and details. This wrap front halter-style camisole had a great asymmetrical silhouette, back tie and such cool crepe adjustable straps - but its ho hum neutral palette had little appeal. I had other ideas for its future! The construction of the top includes a cotton/spandex under layer, a stain ribbon at the underbust that ties in back, a lace overlay on the bodice and crepe straps that can be tied in a variety of ways. Using custom colors for both the natural and artificial fibers, I hand dyed it this deep garnet red. Then gave the body a loosely shibori-tied bath in deepest purple for a three dimensional color effect. How cute would this be with jeans under a belted cardigan with tights and booties?? Equally at home under a dinner jacket for evening or in a woodland fairy festival outfit - how many tops can boast such style range? I LOVE the combination of purple and red mixed with my black goth attire, but this could equally go vintage glam, boho chic, festival outrageous or jean's day casual. The color is so rich it augments the feeling of VA-VA-VA-VOOM this piece exudes. I have shot the piece in a variety of lights (natural, incandescent, flourescent, etc.) as the color varies slightly from room to room (a side effect of the layered dying).

The dye is permanent and custom-mixed - slight variations in color contribute to the beauty of the piece. The top has a wonderful mix of fabrics, each of which took dye differently - be sure to zoom in to see the gorgeous color variations in this one of a kind art top! Care is easy, hand or machine was delicate with cold water, tumble dry low. In amazing shape for vintage - no pulls in fabric, lace and straps is in perfect condition.

Feel Free to message me with any questions you might have about this or any item in my shop. Because this is a one of a kind upcycled vintage piece, it ships priority mail with tracking and insurance to all domestic addresses. Express, expedited or cheaper shipping options that waive tracking and insurance are available - just message me and I'll amend the listing with your preference. I am happy to combine shipments to save on shipping costs!
