I really like the style of this dress and would like to make some. I see these dresses mostly made in rayon or viscose woven fabrics, which I think is difficult to find. Is there a type of cotton or silk blend that can provide similar drape? Where can I buy appropriate fabric for this project? Thank you.

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

Rayon challis isn't all that hard to find.  They have it in Hancock's year round, around here.  A silk crepe de chine would drape well, too, but it's not going to be as casual.  Cotton tends to be stiffer, but I've noticed organic cottons drape a little more like rayon and viscose, but at least around here, a woven organic cotton is pretty hard to find.
