Wrap dresses are always a good way to go - and the neckline on this is awesome. Love this fabric too...do you know the name of it or the maker?

Thank you so much everyone! The map fabric? It's gorgeous huh? I think it's by "prestigious textiles", it's a nice weight cotton for curtains etc I believe Cheesy

Such a lovely dress! I love how naturally the fabric drapes to form the skirt. It's very beautiful =)

I read somewhere that tea-staining makes fabrics darken slightly with age--have you found that, or does the staining grow lighter with light-exposure? I've been wanting to try this with some white fabric I have around but haven't been sure about it.

I haven't found that yet, but then again I have only been tea-staining things for a couple of years. I do know that you need to set the stain in a vinegar solution (or something, I can't remember exactly what) as it will fade in the wash but it's very easy to re-stain Smiley
