Bamboo/Organic Cotton Jersey Dress Style Photos - Emma Erickson Spring 2012

I wore a dress from my Spring 2012 collection to an event a couple weeks ago and wanted to share how I styled my look with you!

Bamboo/Organic Cotton Jersey Dress - Emma Erickson Spring 2012
First a little about the dress! It is a simple draped bamboo/organic cotton jersey dress with asymmetrical seaming and long sleeves. It has a drawstring detail on the side that can be adjusted to achieve more or less ruching. For my Omaha Fashion Week Spring 2012 collection it was styled with a striped bow headband and wooden platform sandals.

The idea was to create a comfortable, body conscious, and also demure look. I love simple jersey pieces that can easily be transformed with different accessories-- stockings, tights, skinny jeans, jewelry. This dress is one of those pieces.

If you are wondering how this dress was patterned and is a peek at the first sample drape (back in July 2011). I made a couple of changes through my sampling process, but you can see how my concept for the dress began.

Here are the rest of the style photos of my outfit that night! I wore a vintage corduroy jacket, fuchsia Wolford stockings, and Michael Kors black patent leather wooden platforms.
