The Pale Yellow Silk and Linen Shift Dress

Added Nov 26, 2013

London, United K...






This summer, all I wanted was a full wardrobe of comfortable silk pieces that floated over the body and didn’t cling to my skin. Enter this fabulous pale yellow 4 ply silk that I picked up on my last trip to New York. I mixed the silk with some linen straps and skirt, a silk organza yoke, and some yellow satin ribbon, and the result is a stylish shift dress with an interesting play on textures that is still very easy to wear.

Material Notes

4 ply silk, silk organza, linen, satin ribbon.
