Another fab review! Love your dress. Do you think this can be made up in a lighter weight fabric such as rayon faille?

Thanks everyone! DrSue, I'm not exactly sure how thick the rayon faille is, but a rayon fabric would be nice with this pattern, but I'd make sure it is heavy enough to drape and hang nicely. Although the bottom ruffle would give it a bit of weight. (I think you mentioned in another thread about leaving off the bottom ruffle).
