Fabric & Fit
Fabrics to shop: The Blake dress sews up best in your favorite stable knit. Look for medium-weight knits like ponte, double knit, French terry or cotton jersey.
Fabrics to avoid: If you choose a very lightweight knit, like bamboo or rayon, the dress might cling, and the neckline might not lay flat.
Fit: This dress has a pretty straight silhouette. There’s slight negative ease at the bust and under 2" of ease at the hips. The straps are wide enough to cover most bra straps.
