Hi-Waist 6-Panel Blouse Phoenix

$189.00

This flattering fit-and-flare style seems to be the most work-appropriate piece out of the lot. The blue and white phoenix and peony motif adds a touch of Chinese-ness to the equation. When paired together, phoenix and peony symbolise wealth and prosperity and a yearning for a bright future. Sounds like an auspicious start to a new year to me!

Fit Suggestion: This top should fit your chest rather snugly, so we suggest picking a size that is about 1" to 1.5” bigger than your actual chest measurement. Please also check and make sure that you are happy with the length and shoulder width too.

Fabric:

  • Phoenix and peony: 100% cotton. Hand-loomed and hand-printed. Medium-weight.
  • Fabric for the back panel: Denim. Mostly cotton with a small portion of spandex. Light weight.
  • Due to the handmade nature of this fabric, there will be areas where the printing and dyes may be off or out-of-alignment. The base fabric is handwoven too, so it’s not pristine white and there are some coloured slubs woven into the fabric. If you are not comfortable with these properties of the fabric, please refrain from getting this item. But we hope you can appreciate the charms of this very handmade blouse and be warmed by the many pairs of hands that worked diligently to bring this to you. :-)
  • Will shrink ~3% after washing.

Care Instructions:

  • Hand wash separately the first few times as there could be slight colour runs initially.
  • Should the denim’s blue dye run into the fish fabric, just put the damp blouse into a washing machine for a quick wash and spin dry. That should take care of the colour run.
  • Subsequently, you may carry on hand washing or machine wash with like-colours using “Delicates” mode, in a protective mesh bag.
  • Iron at “Cotton” or a high setting.
