Well, I have chosen my fabric for the couture dress I am making. I will be using the white background, with the blue circles for the skirt, bodice, and sleeves. Now, for the waistband I will use the white silk twill. Also, I am going to create a small facing around the neckline out of the white for modesty and a white hem 3" band or so to complete the white accents. I am so excited! Susan suggested to me to use cotton batiste for the underlining to make sure that you couldn't see through the white, and my local Mary Jo's Fabric store had it. Not cheap, but it is dreamy nice and I think it will go well with the silk twill.
