Fabric Options: 

  • Pink Orchid ITY - ITY is really a wonderful knit for dresses and tops as the smooth hand and semi-fluid drape are easy to fit and amazing to wear. This ITY combines all that goodness with a fabulous print, a large scale floral with pink orchid type flowers that is bold without being overpowering or busy. This fabric will convince you that the real wardrobe secret is not a little black dress, but a little black floral one!
  • Slate Blue Bamboo Jersey I absolutely love this bamboo jersey! It's silky soft, doesn't pill, has amazing stretch and recovery, and best yet for summer, is naturally cool to the touch. The slate blue color is calm and serene and will integrate beautifully into your wardrobe. A lovely choice!
