Fabric Options:

  • Saffron Dalmatian Dot Tencel - With its silky sheen and velvety hand, tencel is such a lovely fabric to wear. And the pattern of this fabric just brings joy! The deep gold saffron color is bright and cheery, and the spacing on the dots create a more modern look. 
  • Watermelon Pink Eyelet Double Gauze - Just when you thought double gauze couldn't get any better, we found one with eyelet embroidery! Combining two of our favorite things - secret pajamas fabric and delicate embroidery - this fabric was love at first sight. The drape of the double gauze will be just right for this dress and the eyelets will add texture and detail. And that color! A bright watermelon pink will cheer up any day!

Also in this box: Matching thread, 1 yard elastic, and a sewing machine needle
