    The rose silk is gorgeous! I’ve been wanting to sew one up in a similar fabric for awhile 🙂

    Gah, if only this sale came after Feb. 1st (alternatively, gah, if only I was paid bi-weekly)! Ah well, my recent projects have come out so well, and I’m so dedicated to loudly declaring how much I’ve saved by making it myself… off to shop!

    I love this dress and the fabric! I have been waiting for an incentive to buy this pattern. I do LOVE it! What is the name of this fabric or where can I find it? It would be such a flattering color on my daughter and different than pink! 🙂
    Thank you!

    Candace, this is silk dupioni, which you can find in many fabric stores. Quilt shops often carry it, and it comes in a wide variety of vibrant colors. Glad you like the pattern. Have fun!

    What color silk? I found a dusty rose, but it didn’t look like the same color.

    It all depends on where you buy it, I think. Dupioni is often woven and dyed in very small quantities in people’s homes in India, so there is lots of variety in the dyes. That’s part of the charm, I think. But you may have to try a few places before you find just the right color. Good luck!

    Love the bags and I would love a pillow fight with my grandson, Iain. I would go down laughing.
