In the Nude
* * *
I have been searching high and low for the perfect body conscious midi dress in a nude color…and didn’t have much luck, so I decided to make one…and then some for KTRcollection.
The thing about body conscious dresses (especially nude colored ones) are the fit/style and the whether if the fabric is thick enough so that it’s not see-thru. Many knit fabrics that are light in colors (beige, white or cream) are pretty thin and are see-thru… After searching through approximately 80 swatches, I finally came across this one. A lightweight stretchy knit that feels like butter but thick enough where it’s not see-thru. I also love the color griege (which is a combination of grey and beige), because it has been known to compliment a variety of skin tones.
I also wanted a wrap style dress so that I’m not, well feeling too body conscious… and the ruching creates a perfect hourglass shape. It’s all in the illusion (wink!)!
