- Midnight Petal Print Cotton Gauze - My mind always goes to gauze for patterns that have fewer seams. Because the fabric can fray and stretch, using it for large pattern pieces, like this dress has, is ideal. But that doesn't mean that gauze is boring. This gauze, with its petal pattern, like it has been rubber stamped by hand, is a stunner and will shine from the bodice to the hem in this dress. The fabric has a dry, smooth hand, almost like quilting cotton, but a light, airy feel. It's sure to keep you cool this August and beyond!
- True Blue Silk Noil - If you have fallen in love with the silky noil that has been popular the past few years, meet its upscale cousin. 100% silk, this fabric is made of shorter strands of thread, giving it a nubbly, handwoven feel. Because it is silk, it takes dye beautifully to create a lovely denim blue hue, like your favorite chambray shirt. Light, breathable, and a joy to sew, this fabric has it all!
- Bright Pink Abstract Floral Tencel Twill - There are large scale prints and then there are giant prints that take up nearly the whole width of the fabric. That's this printed Tencel which is like a mural of floral color. Huge green leaves and red flowers float on a bubblegum pink background, giving both a tropical and painterly feel. The tencel itself is dry and supple, and will transform into a truly gorgeous dress!
