I can't seem to settle on a fabric type so I figured I'd ask here. What would you reccommend would be best for her dress. Also her giant full robe. :eeek:
(doesn't have to be the same fabric, I just have to be able to get them in similar blues)

What would YOU use?

Her dress


Crepe satin? Twill? Duchess satin? Other?
(Unfortunately the blue sateen joanns sells isn't available in store or online currently, or I'd use that.)

Her robe



And the pattern I was going to use, as I want it full and draping.

I'm all for ordering online! While my local Joanns has a huge selection, none of their blue fabrics really "Wow'd" me.

I like the idea of crepe, it flows much more nicely than a twill or a duchess satin. Of course reading then looking at the picture before reading your list of ideas, my brain went straight to velveteen....

I considered velvet in the beginning but its just not how I wanna go, especially with plans to add trim I want to blend in and airbrushing details. What about the robe?

I didn't see a picture for the robe but I looked at the pattern to use. I like outer layers with some weight to them, gives them more oomphf. In this case, polyester blending will add to the swish & drape of whatever you pick, so yay save money!

Hope thats fixed now....

Guess I'm just nervous about picking something that in the end won't be quite right.
