- Smoke Blue Viscose Linen Crepe - The soft drape and cool hand of the fabric is perfect for this dress. And the color! A dusky, muted blue is not your typical holiday color, but has the cool, iciness to remind us of the winter season. The fabric itself is sort of the lovechild of a rayon challis and a crepe, combining the silky hand of your favorite challis with a slightly nubbly texture you get with crepe. The combination will give you a dress that is both relaxed and elegant. A lovely choice!
- Stardust Amaranth Embroidered Dot Gauze - The amaranth is a plant that has deep red flowers that grow in the fall, so this color seemed like the ideal option for our holiday dresses. Lush and saturated, this double gauze is an instagram favorite, probably due to its gold embroidered dots that add a refined element to a simple cotton. With a floaty drape and super soft hand, this dress will look like your fanciest dress but feel like your favorite nightgown. The ultimate in secret pajamas!
- Black Embroidered Cotton Voile - When this fabric popped up at one of our wholesalers, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to put it to good use. A simple black voile has embroidered with an intricate white thread floral, and it is simply a sight to see. The cotton is super light, making it a great choice for the draped style of the dress, while the embroidery gives it a couture feel, as if you spent hours hand stitching your dress to perfection. A fabric as unique as you are!
