Lovely photo.  Looks like tulle (bridal veil stuff) or an incrdibly sheer chiffon.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

I second the chiffon fabric. 

If you decide to make this dress of chiffon, buy a bit of extra to practice with.  It's a difficult fabric to work with an you'll want to have enough to play with.

I'd say a gauze type cloth was used.  Do you have a photo of her standing up so we can see how the dress falls?

The way it clings to the wall makes me think it has to be something with a little "tooth" - like tulle.  It could just be an overskirt, with a regular skirt of something silky/slinky under??
