The Hughes Dress is designed for woven fabrics. You will get a different look depending on the fabric you select. A drapey rayon or silk will give a more elegant dressy look, while a more sturdy fabric like a linen will give you a gorgeous everyday dress. We encourage you to be creative and daring with fabric! It would look amazing in a double gauze cotton, a nice shirting, rayon challis, or lightweight canvas - you can’t really go wrong with this dress.
