- Navy and Cream Floral Rayon Challis - Challis is an obvious choice for a flutter sleeve since it's super thin with a soft, flowing drape. And since it often comes in amazing prints, we had our pick of options. I went with this navy blue option that has large-scale bunches of crabapple blooms. The delicate cream of the flowers contrasts so beautifully with the blue and the uncluttered bunches allow the flutters to stand out without disappearing into the print. Sweet and classic, this print is simply stunning.
- Antique Pink Cotton Gauze - We always seem to gravitate towards pink, but as you know, there is so much variety in shade, from deep fuchsias to pale pastels. This antique pink color falls somewhere in the middle, on an ever so slightly peach side, which makes a soft yet saturated color for summer. The single gauze is ultra light and airy, almost like wearing a cloud, and the crinkled textured will add even more flutter to the sleeves. This is absolutely secret pajamas in a top, but you'll be the only one who knows!
- Brushstroke Floral Print Crepe de Chine - This crepe is all about the print. Painterly and delicate, it consists of a watercolor brushstroke floral ranging from deep, cobalt blue to bright lemon yellow, all on a white crepe de chine background. Silky soft and light, the fabric will sort of skim over your skin, and the flutters will have shape and movement. If you want to wear a top that is a work of art, this is the fabric for you!
