Hi Everyone
I hope you can help me track down similar material for a friend who wants to recreate this dress. http://www.friendsofpr.com/genierit/CIMG1532.JPG
She bought the dress in Dusseldorf Germany in 1994. The tags have been removed because they scratched her.
I know we can find/ create a base pattern to build on, but the fabric is the key of course! The hand is quite 'scratchy' and it has a firm springy body. After 10 years it still looks like new. It has some linen content but is mixed with another fibre (poly of some kind?) as it doesn't crease very much.
Here is a close up of the fabric. http://www.friendsofpr.com/genierit/CIMG1535.JPG

Sorry I can't seem to get the 'click here' links working so I hope you can copy and open to help us out. Thanks for reading.
Rita
