- Silver Ring Chiffon - There's something impossibly chic about chiffon. I always think of JLo's Versace dress that looked opulent and dreamy. This chiffon may not be Versace green, but it still has all the elements that will make you love it for a glamorous dress. The modern silver ring pattern has a midcentury feel to it, and the black background is perfect for an elegant night out. Oh, and we're including a silk/cotton voile to underline the bodice and skirt, so you can be glamorous without showing JLo levels of skin.
- Amaranth Viscose Crepe - As we said above, amaranth is the quintessential fall red for us. In a viscose crepe that you'll swear is silk, it's all the more ideal for you holiday dress. A fluid drape, cool hand, and subtle sheen will make your dress something to behold. And we swear, people will be amazed when you tell them you made it. Always the fun bit of making your own clothes, right?
- Calacatta Marble Printed Tencel - Our boldest print in the bunch, this marble print tencel is a knockout. Calcatta marble has veins of color, ranging from pale pink to bright gold, that give this fabric a truly unique look. The color is cool and opulent, which matches the incredibly soft hand of this tencel. A slight sheen adds even more interest too! If you're looking to make a one of a kind, "oh my god, where did you get that?" type wrap dress, this is absolutely the fabric for you!
