- Ocean Mist Rayon Spandex Jersey - I originally had a darker green for this option, but decided last minute to lighten it up. I loved the colors so much in the next fabric, that I wanted to highlight some of the more pastel hues. And I really fell in love with this green. It's bluer and deeper than a sage, with a hazy quality I find very relaxing. The fabric itself is soft, with a semi-fluid drape, with excellent recovery and stretch. A perfect fabric for this dress, I'm already feeling serene thinking about it!
- Tropical Leaves Double Brushed Poly - This fabric is transporting. Unless you're lucky enough to live in a place that has palm trees and tropical plants, this fabric will take you there with its large scale botanical print and jewel-toned colors. In this print, the leaves are tinged with turquoise, green, and orange, all on a dark blue background. And it's all on top of the much loved (see above) double brushed poly. So incredibly soft and stretchy, this fabric is about to become the nap dress/vacation outfit of your dreams.
- Desert Rose Rib Knit - Because of the shaped bodice of this dress, I knew I wanted to include a rib knit. The body hugging quality of ribs is excellent and lends itself so well to the shape of this pattern. Instead of a 2x2 rib, which is quite close together, I found this larger rib, in a medium weight, that will look almost like stripes when all put together. A polyester-rayon blend, it's soft but durable, and in a desert rose, almost like a dark salmon pink, the color is soft but rich, slightly pastel, but not baby pink. A lovely base color to pair with all sorts of layering pieces. A beautiful choice if you ask me!
