- Black and White Pointillist Leaf Ecovero Twill - We keep getting drawn to black and white botanicals. They're just so elegant! The classic pairing is represented here with an unusual take on the traditional leaf print. Tiny pointillist dots create the leaves as if each one was hand painted on the fabric. When sewn into this dress, you get a look that is simply gorgeous - your traditional black, accented with these large-scale fronds. Make a gorgeous neutral you'll treasure in your closet!
- Auburn Cotton Linen Abstract Jacquard - This fabric is love at first sight. Seriously. As soon as we saw it, we couldn't wait to sew it. The jacquard weave gives it great texture plus makes it reversible! The lighter portions are simple weave and the darker side is a more open looped weave. Plus the red color, sort of a red clay, is absolutely stunning. Flexible and surprisingly light for what it looks like, it will transform into a stunning dress.
