Artist statement: (This dress) is a great transitional piece for all seasons because it has long sleeves, yet is made from light weight, jersey knit fabric that is a by product of the timber industry. It is actually wood pulp that is spun into fine threads and then mixed with cotton, leaving an incredibly soft, stretchy material that is comparable to silk. This process is also used to make soy fiber, except they use soy stock instead of pulp. It stretches to be form fitting and flattering on anyone. This new material is being used for everything from lingerie to baby clothes. This dress in particular is great for nursing mothers because of it's deep and stretchy neckline and double layered bust. Mama or not, it's an eye catcher and a favoite among customers in my boutique.
