Fabric Options: Read more about the fabric options here.

  • Periwinkle Wildwood Floral Cotton Lawn - Cotton lawn was always my first option for this dress. The lightly crisp drape shows off the flare of the skirt and close fit of the bodice, while the thinness of the fabric reduces any bulk at the seams, especially the gathered waist. Plus, lawns often have wonderful floral prints, like this wildwood floral. Doesn't the print make you feel like you're walking through a meadow on a clear skied day? Eternal springtime in a fabric, and perfect fabric for this dress!
  • Watermelon Pink Eyelet Double Gauze - I didn't think my love of double gauze could get any deeper until I discovered this eyelet version. Combining two of my 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!
  • Butterscotch Floral Ecovero Linen - This fabric combines the drape and silky hand of ecovero with the structure and durability of linen and cotton to create an ideal dress fabric. But it's really all about the print. The butterscotch color is sunshine itself and the large scale, line drawn floral is subtle yet impactful, just what you want in a tea dress. Paired with a jean jacket, this dress is perfect for brunch; on it's own, it's an amazing cocktail dress to take you all through summer. An amazing fabric that will become a one of a kind dress!  (Note, this fabric will ship after May 3)
