Black Ponte de Roma with Silver Foil Spandex and Silver Button Accents
Note: Foil spandex likes to wear and rub off over time. The silver may fade or disappear. The front chest detailing is not stitched down fully to allow for better stretch over the chest and around curves, so it's not recommended to be worn like a jacket open!
DRY CLEAN ONLY for best care
Colors may vary due to monitor settings
This top is perfect when paired with Leggings, Jeans, or an underskirt. THIS IS NOT A TRUE DRESS, the front splits open at the waist!!
This tunic is made from Ponte de Roma, which is engineered for stretch and strength. So you can go up or down a size and not miss out on comfort. We do recommend ordering your normal size in our apparel in this piece. If you're between sizes on the fit chart, go down rather than up.
The tunic is available in two lengths. The shorter length is around 40" in length from shoulder to hem and is the perfect length for people under 5'5" (the sleeves are also slightly shorter, too!!). The longer length is around 44" in length and is for people around 5'7" in length!

Depending on the style you can go down or up based on your own personal preference for fit and look. Different body shapes may also fit better in a different size. Our pieces tend to have very nice stretch.
If you're unsure of what to size off of, the chest for tops/dresses tends to be the most important measurement to check as our pieces have such a good stretch that even if you're more rectangular shaped with a waist nearly matching your bust, the waist of the garment will very likely stretch to fit!
Also the larger a garment gets the more it can stretch as it has even more spandex in it! So smaller sizes can stretch 3-5" while larger sizes can stretch 5-10".
Are you Petite? You likely will want to size down in spandex dresses and tops as they're so stretchy. So if our models with similar measurements to you but tall are wearing a given size you may prefer to go down one size in spandex. Knitwear cardigans and tops may be similar but if something says it has less stretch than our usual knits we wouldn't recommend sizing down. And of course additional hemming may be necessary for things with skirts.
Are you Tall? We don't recommend sizing down as the garments will be shorter on you. We wouldn't recommend sizing up as the shoulders and body may be too large for you. We recommend ordering the size comparable models are wearing.
When we have combined sized styles it means you should still buy the size intended for your measurements. However combined sizes tend to be oversized so you can go down if you'd like a less oversized fit. (It's best to only go down if you are the smaller of the two combined sizes, if you're the second size in a combo size you may hate the tighter fit)
Care: Nearly everything we make is recommended to be hand washed on cold water and dried flat.
For BEST care: Dry Clean if you have a cleaners you like and trust.
We personally throw almost everything in the wash (often with color catcher sheets) inside out on cold; then we drape over our chairs or on a drying rack to let it all dry. This is the best way to care for most RTW Apparel.
Stretch Vinyl: Spot cleaned and sprayed with vodka if you don't want to dry clean yet (Vinyl doesn't do well around ANY kind of heat)
Spandex/Ponte de Roma: Cold Wash, hang or dry flat (hanging to dry can cause it to stretch out). We also recommend color catching sheets when washing Spandex or Ponte as color in the fabric can be shed over many washes.
Velvet: We've turned our velvet pieces inside out and washed them in delicate wash on cold and in garment bags, then laid the piece across our bed to dry. Velvet hates heat so never put in the dryer. We've been fine steaming velvet with a hand steamer. Best care is to dry clean.
Snagged or Pulled a knit piece? Get a Snag Repair Tool, which you can buy on Amazon or in your local sewing shop. This repair tool is easy to use, but there's a great tutorial video if you want help!
Storage: Sweaters should be stored folded, never stored hung up as it can stretch and warp them. Spandex and Ponte can be stored hung up but be aware they can also stretch over time if a heavy dress or skirt.
