- Peach Nectar Viscose Spandex Jersey - This soft pink jersey is as sweet as nectar (cheesy, right?). But it's true! The color is dusty with a hint of peach and will become a great nap dress in your wardrobe. Medium weight, this fabric has some nice body to it while still maintaining a semi-fluid drape. The combination makes it ideal for this dress where you want some swinginess but also don't want sheerness. Make a pastel nightgown of your dreams with this fantastic knit!
- Sage Cherry Plum Double Brushed Poly - Ok, I'll admit this month is really a love affair with DBP, but I just love it for pajamas. The snuggly soft hand is perfect for loungewear, and the drape - soft but not slinky - fits so well with the swing skirt of this patter. And when I found this unique pattern (how often do you find florals on a green background), I couldn't pass it up. Keep the hope of spring alive this winter with a cheery, cherry floral that's sure to brighten up your wardrobe!
- Indigo Cotton Modal Jersey - Sometimes you want to go classic, and that's exactly what this dark blue jersey is. The neutral color allows the dress to transition from day to night to day again, and the cotton modal blend is both cool and moisture wicking (perfect for sleepwear). The cotton also gives the fabric a little bit more body than the other two, though it still is a very soft drape, so if you’re looking to do some twirling. Create a comfy and classic nap dress with this lovely knit!
