What kind of fabric is this?

Postby hayleemarie » September 25th, 2012, 8:15 pm

Hi everyone,
Ok so I have a question I'm hoping you all can help me with. I'm wanting to make a dress similar to the one attached,
but I'm having trouble finding similar fabric for the collar. Does anyone know what kind of fabric that is? Or what it would be similar to? Obviously it is gold but I have no idea what the actual type of fabric is called.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have no idea - it's hard to tell without a close up of the collar. However, if I were going to try and duplicate this dress, I think I'd do something where the fabrics compliment each other - so if I made the dress of white linen fabric, I'd make the collar of ecru linen. Alternately, you could make a beautiful lace collar of ecru laces on the white dress. There are gold metallic cottons, gold satin or gold tissue lame (a real pain to work with and not really washable/dry-cleanable) that would work if you wanted gold.

The two tone linen was my thought too.
