I love these gorgeous fabrics from Cotton + Steel. The Octopus (Octopi?) are really popular with my clients. This client wanted a striped fabric on top and I found a wonderful match in this Cotton+ Steel stripe. However, I decided to play around with the stripes and put them in a diagonal to match the v-neck. The dress also features full box pleats, full lining and pockets, of course. We think it turned out beautifully!
