  • Neon Wildflower Rayon Cotton Lawn - This rayon lawn is like looking into a field of wildflowers. A collage of color and pattern, the fabric is bright and fresh and wonderfully unique. The wildness of the pattern will complement the traditional elements of the pattern, and the softness of the fabric will keep you cool and comfortable all summer long!
  • Persimmon Washed Linen - If you want a linen dress for the summer, why not go bold with this brightly saturated pink orange hue. Like fresh papaya or tangy persimmon, this color brighten up your day and your wardrobe. Lightweight and airy, this linen has an antique washed finish, adding softness and texture. A stunning choice for a fabulous shirt dress
  • Blue Fern Printed Linen - We used this same substrate in our jumpsuit boxes, and we couldn't resist using it again (in a different pattern) for this dress. The linen is silky soft and light, and the blue and green fern leaves are playful and tropical. A dress made with this print will be a knockout piece in your wardrobe and one that you'll cherish for years to come.
