The fabric is a knit that Mikey picked out from Kaplan's. I think it's viscose and nylon, but I bought it my birthday weekend (more than two months ago), so I don't really remember. It's light and soft. I didn't have a lot of wiggle room on where to place my pattern pieces, but I saw this pink flower and knew I wanted it on the back of my shoulder. The rest of the back is mostly beige and black.
