Most light to mid weight woven fabrics will suit this dress.
We recommend linen, cotton and cotton blends for summer

>Sample Pics

Floral Orange/mustard floral single fabric dress is made up in cotton weave (up-cycled cotton duvet cover we found at a local Thrift store)
The blue floral dress is also an up-cycled cotton sheet from the Thrift shop.

*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. Some fabrics will not shrink but 100% cotton,linen and rayon are almost guaranteed to shrink. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build up that may have occurred during printing anyway.
