Fabric Options: Read more about the fabric options here.

  • Blueberry Bamboo Jersey - You probably already have a little black dress. But do you have a deep blue one? This blue, falling somewhere between a navy and royal, is just the right hue for a hit of color while still remaining neutral. And it's the perfect color for a dress that can do double duty as a special occasion outfit and everyday dress. Plus, this bamboo jersey is just the right weight to be drapey but not body hugging. A lovely fabric!
  • Pink Orchid Floral ITY - Poinsettias might be the go-to flower for anything after Thanksgiving, but I think this pink and red orchid print is way better. Large scale, these flower looks like they've been watercolor painted on the black ITY knit and have holiday colors without being overtly seasonal. Plus, the ITY has a lovely drape and cool hand that will feel so comfortable to wear, for the holiday season and beyond!
  • Oxblood Rayon Modal Sweater Knit - The oxblood sweater knit from our cardigan boxes was so popular, I couldn't help but use a similar fabric for this dress. While the color is the same, the content is different, slightly lighter and with a distinct shine that you get from rayon. If you want to make a wrap dress that feels like your favorite knit sweater, this is the fabric for you!

    Also in this box: Matching thread, clear elastic for shoulder seams, fusible interfacing, a twin needle and a ballpoint sewing machine needle
