Fabric Notes from the Designer

Black Corded Silk Voile

Description: Stunningly embroidered with a trio of cording. Voiles are a must in the summer, especially if one wants to layer and still have a comfortable, breathable ensemble. This weave allows you to do just that on the warmest summer days. Best of all, this weave reads as season-less fabric, and it can be worn year round.

Content: Silk weave with cotton and silk cording.

Care: Simply hand wash or put through machine delicate cycle in cold water with a plant based detergent. We suggest using a natural fabric softener to maintain the softness we have washed into it. Tumble dry on extra-low heat with our artisan wool dryer balls just for a few minutes to keep the relaxed effect featured in the Look Book. Then, hang to dry.

Black Embroidered Circle Linen

Purpose: Chosen for our layering frocks, select shirts, dusters, skirts, and sashes.

Description: We love the symbolism of the eternal circle and the shape of the hopeful sun. Its repetition across our embroidered linen draws us in to calm and assure us. Not perfectly aligned and symmetrical, yet the repetition still works, like an impromptu line of jazz music. The embroidery creates completely open circles that allows the fabric underneath to show through.

Content: 100 percent washed linen.

Black Ethereal Stripe Knit

Description: The drape and feel of this knit against the skin. Oh, my goodness! It is delightful. It is opaque yet lightweight and rare to find. We need unusual knits like this in the summer to keep our skin protected from the sun yet still allow us to feel the wonderful breeze. Our go-with-most-everything black hue is ideal for every Ivey Abitz wardrobe. This is the best choice for our shorter jackets, cardigans, and base layering frocks.

Black White Gauzy Stripe

Description: The texture! The drape! The softness! Sometimes, it is appropriate to use that many exclamation points to describe a fabric. It is lightweight, yet it is pretty nearly opaque. You’ll look at it and ask How on earth was this woven? It is magical. A mix of black and white, the two threads are interwoven together in the black stripes to create a soft contrast. It is an ideal choice for our base layering frocks, especially when a silk chiffon is worn over it. Short jackets and shirts look splendid in such a stripe, too.

Black/Blueberry Washed Gauze

Description: Is it black? Yes. Is it Blueberry? Yes. It is one of those beloved ambiguous hues that allows it to lean toward black or lean toward blue, depending upon what you wear with it. This is our lightest and airiest cotton gauze in the collection, and we like this juxtaposition with the richly versatile hue. Choose for breezy duster coats, lightweight summer frocks, and airy shirts. Semi-opaque. Though it is a perfectly perfect summer weight, it can be enjoyed through the rest of the seasons, too.

Cherry Crinkled Double Gauze

Description: Gauze is wonderful for summer.

Earth Lace Knit

Description: A rich brown (warm that leans toward burgundy) is unexpected in summer, yet this one is so relevant for the Midsummer 2019 Collection. It is right at home.

Floral Embroidered Washed Cotton

Meet your new everyday choice for summer, especially if you are tough on your clothing. Because of its tight and sturdy weave, it is breathable and comfortable to about 80 degree temperatures. Good choice for opaque frocks and jackets. The background is a light cream, and the stunning embroidery has a hint of our Peach, Sun, and Leafy hues.

Gardenia and Sand Washed Stripe

Purpose: This weave is ideal for most of our designs in the collection. Best for spring and summer wear.

Description: It really doesn’t get better than this when it comes to a soft-feeling, hard-wearing weave. Its washed and textured look is visually appealing and so easy to wear. A great travel companion because it begs to have texture and creases in it—your creases. Its character depends upon you wearing it.

Leafy Washed Handkerchief Linen

Description: Handkerchief linens are workhorse fabrics. They don’t immediately catch the eye like a bold stripe or floral, yet they are usually the first thing one gravitates toward for an everyday garment in a summer ensemble. We understand how important it is to have breathable frocks in hot weather that have a bit more opacity than gauze and voile. The handkerchief delivers during the hottest summer days. Ideal for base layering frocks, lightweight trousers (with longer jackets and shirts worn over them), and shirts.

Oat Crinkled Double Gauze

Description: Gauze is a beloved weave for summer. We especially love it in an opaque double gauze! This particular gauze has a lightweight cotton voile base, and the lightweight crinkled gauze top layer is tacked onto the voile. The result is an extraordinary texture. It also lends itself well to our raw edged designs, like the Tilling Frock, Glenclyffe designs, Celia designs, and the Bonheur designs. The main hue is Oat, but look more closely. You’ll also see flecks of black and white, too. Ideal for frocks, jackets, and trousers.

Peach Embroidered Weave

Description: Every now and again, we feature a fabric that is subtle and stunning simultaneously. This is admittedly one of the more special weaves we have featured in quite some time. The Peach hue is muted, leaning toward an antique light rose, but not quite. The embroidered design seems to float effortlessly across the voile base. Its mix of raised, soft texture atop the soft, flat voile soothes and delights. What makes this fabric even more special is that it is reversible. The Peach Embroidered Weave is more polished on one side. On the reverse side, it features our Peach Frayed Weave. We like mixing them together with a jacket in the embroidered weave and a frock in the frayed weave. Or vice versa. Either side is delightful.

Peach Venetian Embroidered Voile

Description: We love the symbolism of the eternal circle and the shape of the hopeful sun. Its repetition across our embroidered linen draws us in to calm and assure us.

Summer Harvest Washed Silk

Description: This special weave visually sums up the thoughts behind the Midsummer 2019 Collection: Clothing nourishes the soul like food nourishes the body. Do you want to wear junk food or fresh fruit? This weave takes the idea literally, playfully and elegantly featuring the shapes of cherries across this refined, natural silk weave. It is lightweight, yet it is opaque. It is lovely to mix in with our more transparent weaves to give you a bit of coverage in an ensemble. The Kale, creamy white, with a hint of black creates a trio that pleases us to the core.

Content: 100 percent silk.

Care: Simply hand wash or put through machine delicate cycle in cold water with a plant based detergent. We suggest using a natural fabric softener to maintain the softness we have washed into it. Tumble dry on extra-low heat with our artisan wool dryer balls just for a few minutes to keep the relaxed effect featured in the Look Book.

Sun and Sand Washed Stripe

Purpose: This weave is ideal for most of our designs in the collection. Best for spring and summer wear, but it can be worn year round.

Description: It really doesn’t get better than this when it comes to a soft yet hard wearing weave. Its washed and textured look is visually appealing and so easy to wear. A great travel companion because it begs to have texture and creases in it. Its entire existence and character depends upon you wearing it. Don’t choose this weave unless you plan on wearing it often. Tiny stripes are yarn dyed with alternating hues of Sun and Sand.

Content: 100 percent cotton.

Care: Simply hand wash or put through machine delicate cycle in cold water with a plant based detergent. We suggest using a natural fabric softener to maintain the softness we have washed into it.
