I had a really hard time committing to a busy fabric for a dress that would cover most of my body, so I chickened out and went with a solid. I am not really sure what this fabric is made of. Some kind of cotton lycra blend. It is a grayish khaki (I love neutrals) with bit of stretch and a bit of a sheen. Best part about it is that it was only $1.39 a yard at Vogue fabrics so I jumped on it. I plan on layering it with a boyfriend cardigan and bold scarf to brighten it up a bit. Can't wait to get started!
