I fell in love with this dress on Ssense.com Chloe dress and was wondering how I might copy it. Anyone have any suggestions? TIA,

Sue

P.S. Whoops, I'm in the wrong topic! Will change it as soon as I figure out how.

Parachutes used to be made out of silk, so you could definitely use silk to get a good drape. On the other hand, if you specifically want the nylon, you could cut down a hammock, like they carry here:http://www.seasonsgalore.com/54-x-108-royal-blue-lite-ventures-brazilian-style-parachute-cloth-hammock/

If you are looking for a specific pattern, I have seen tops with that kind of neck/shoulder treatment, but you might have to draft the sleeve part. I can't tell exactly what they have done with the hem.

Thanks for your suggestions, sunny0702.

I'm not as worried about the fabric (I'll probably use silk as polyethylene really doesn't sound appealing) as I am about drafting the back. The dress is actually sleeveless with ruffles or a flounce - the flounce appeals to me more. I'll take a look for a blouse or top in that neckline/shoulder style. It would give me a place to start.
