if you've ever seen twin peaks (the greatest tv show ever made), you'll immediately know what this dress is all about...black and white zigzag fabric and red velvet to mimic the floor and curtains of the black lodge...
Here's the black lodge:

Here's the dress:




Question:  Do you know where to find more zigzag fabric like this?  I'd like to make more but I don't know how to find it...

Beautiful dress! It's perfect!
When you're looking for the zigzag fabric, try looking under "chevrons". That's what the hipsters are calling zigzags these days. They're really popular, so I have no doubt you'll find what you need.

I heart this dress so hard!  I adore twin peaks and had wanted to make a zigzag dress last year for my bday (hadn't thought of the velvet!) but couldn't find the fabric so I gave up.
That dress is amazing

Wow, that's crazy! I just had the idea to do a similar dress, but with a red velvet cape. My problem is finding the fabric. All black and white zig zag seems the be too small or upholstry fabric Sad

Well done, Twin Peaks is by far the greatest.
