- Black and White Fern Print Crepe - This crepe is our favorite for the summer months. It is deliciously light, like a georgette, with a very small creped texture. This combination gives you a fabric that simply skims along your skin: silky and fluid. The pattern ups the ante with a black-on-white, line-drawn fern print that feels tropical yet neutral. The light background does have some translucency, so we'd recommend flesh-colored undergarments, but it's still opaque enough to not need a lining. A simply stunning fabric!
- Jade Rayon Challis - This fabric, a floaty, silky soft challis, combines a semi-fluid drape - for movement and swing - with a deep teal color for instant luxury. The jewel tone is bright and bold and will add a glorious pop of color to your wardrobe. Go glam with this dress; we promise you won't regret it!
- Pink Expressionist Print Rayon Poplin - I'm always drawn to painterly prints, and this one is a doozy. A dark navy background is slashed with brushstrokes of pink, turquoise, and white for a fabric that is vivid and unique. The geometric lines, all angles and corners, contrast so nicely with the soft, draped shape of the dress. And the colors are an instant mood boost. Make a one of a kind dress with this vibrant option!
