Velvets and chiffons, faerie tale clothes. Definitely designed
for the romantic dreamer in us, these fashions include a
gorgeous floor length, hooded cape in silk velvet (the most
expensive item in the selection at $285), flowing skirts,
tunics, and shawls. My favorite skirt, described as looking "as
if it could be made of cobwebs and stardust," is actually made
of a more practical silk chiffon and costs right around $100. A
bit pricey, but these are exciting, unusual, and very feminine
and available in "bountiful" or custom sizes. Regarding large
sizes, they write: "We have found, in the last year, that our
Bountiful clientele is quite diverse. Rather than trying to make
clothes that are not going to fit you, we suggest you inquire
about the fashions you are interested in. We keep a very small
inventory to begin with, so many of our orders are made up when
we receive them. We only charge about $10 more on most Bountiful
items and this is truly because we tend to receive fabrics that
are not very wide and do in fact use more yardage for these
items. It is not a fat tax! So, please call us and let's see
what is possible."
