So – the picture in my mind of the perfect beach wedding dress was a simple white cotton halter dress. Finding this in the winter was more difficult than I had anticipated, so my Mom graciously offered to make it for me. (Yes, I know I'm extremely lucky to have a mother who can sew at this level.) We found a pattern – Simplicity 4577. Overall a very simple pattern.
The only challenge was the fabric. One thought was white eyelet cotton. It is such a simple dress pattern, so I felt the fabric would need some texture/interest. I came across an online reference to a 'swatching service' provided by a fabric store in Royal Oak, MI called Haberman's. Just describe what you are looking for and they will source fabric for you and send samples.
Haberman's came up with this fantastic fabric!
