I found this pix on the web. I attempted doing a pix search but to no avail. For some reason I can’t get the little camera button for the GOOGLE pix search to work on my computer buim this is no surprise as I am not that technologically savvy. If any of you amazing bees can eithr find the designer or a description of the dress/fabric I would most definitely appreciate it, as I am currently looking to have this dress made but neither myself or the seamstress can figure out what fabric was used, if it is pattern or plain, or if it hangs flat down, or is pushed out slightly at the bottom with a bit of crinolin. I followed some links to the picture and many other people posted questions regarding the make and fabric of this dress but there were no replies posted back from out there in cyberspace.(Lol) Please, oh please, I’d surly appriciate anyone’s help on this one. 🙂

From creepily staring really hard at the photo, I have some fabric suggestions. NOTE: replace “silk” with “polyester” for any of these, and you will get a similar look for less.
Silk Crepe/Crepe de Chine (plainweave fabric with a flatter/almost-matte look)
Silk Georgette (has a more grainy texture):
Silk/Cotton Blend (Keep a watchful eye on the percentage of silk vs. cotton. More cotton = more satin/knit-like fabric. More silk = a drapier/more silk-like fabric.)

Mllefabuleux, thank you, thank you, thank you for your fantastic suggestions and explanation of the various fabrics I could use for this dress. My seamstress could tell the fabric has a print on it (which I didn’t even realize and I believe that type of fabric is called brocade) but it’s more important to me that the dress drapes like the one in the picture and has more of a matte rather than a shiney finish, as this is what appeals most to me about this dress. I’d actually rather the fabric be plain rather than printed your suggestions were very apropos. Your explanation has been extremely helpful to a gal who knows nothing about fabric. I appriciate you taking the time to post and share your knowledge. Thanks again. I will be taking your post staight to my seamstress.
