The dress itself is made from a lightweight white fabric of some kind. Maybe muslin? I really don’t know. It’s a very flowy fabric that looks like it would make an absolutely amazing summer dress.
The skirt is very full — but I can’t tell if it’s cut as one with the rest of the dress or sewn on separately. There seem to be more than one layer in the skirt — I would guess that since the fabric in this dress is as sheer as it is, that there is an underdress, as well as a couple more layers of fabric in the skirt. Another guess is that perhaps the edges of the skirt are frayed in the same way as the sleeves. . . and might the skirt be cut on the bias as well? . . . after all, it flows so nicely!
I really don’t know what to call the layer of blue fabric in this outfit. . . vest is as close as I can come. I would guess this to be a baby blue chiffon type fabric. It’s really simple, in that it is just a rectangle of fabric with a neckhole cut in the center. Except that it does drape lower in the back and seems to have one side of the back that is a LOT longer than the rest. That’s where there would be a variation in the simple rectangle. . . and I can’t quite picture how it would have been cut.
Here you can see how one edge of the vest is much longer.
The belt is a tan fabric with white stripes set in groups of five. It’s also a sheer fabric. I love the many sashes that Hadassah wears before she becomes queen. I find them quite pretty… and so simple! I would love to hear any observations you all have on this dress.
