Dress Fabric Deets

In my forays into the vast fabric wilderness, I have come across so many beautiful textures, sheens, weaves, and weights that I’m finding it difficult to keep up.  Batiste, crepe de chine, georgette, and shot silk are dive bombing me from every direction and my head is swirling with natural and synthetic fibers.  So, I thought, why not get some organization (and sanity!) and make a detailed fabric type list.  Below are the dress fabrics that I find lusciously fabulous (especially the vintage versions!) with their corresponding mugshots.  By no means is this list comprehensive, but the stars are definitely all in attendance.

With so many luxurious fabrics out there, how can you not just want to roll around in them before you sew them into fabulous frocks? ;)

Enjoy your Monday!
