Welcoming Polka Dot Rayon Dress

June 24, 2014 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments


Britex Guest Blogger Laura Mae of Lilacs & Lace welcomed another polka dotted dress to her wardrobe. She chose a beautiful and very popular rayon from our online store for this design. Fortunately, she ordered the fabric in time, because it's all gone now!



She started with a Structured Underlining post, which is super helpful when working with a very drapey rayon like this one.



Then a look at the hemline and deadline of this project created for the Marin Symphony's annual Wine Auction & Dinner.



Here is the stunning inspiration shot. As for a winter version of this dress, we're already dreaming it up in a luscious wool crepe. Can't wait to see it!
