Did you say Pique?

Yes! Pique is one of my favorite summer textiles. It was popular in the 1960’s worn by the preppy crowd. Pique is a tightly woven cotton fabric with various raised patterns, produced especially by a double warp that holds its shape very well.
When I saw this Carmela Sutera gown come down the runway, I thought this would make the perfect beach side/garden wedding gown!

It's simple and elegant in an Audrey Heburn sort of way.

Can’t you see her with a fellow in a navy blazer and Khakis?
