I was wondering where I might be able to get fabric like this watercolour print (that overlaps the opaque silk layer in the dress below).
The fabric doesnt need to be indentical, but it you know of any sites with fabrics that are similar and could be used for the same purpose - please let me know! Cheesy

The fabric looks like it was hand dyed.

You might try looking for Batik fabrics, they tend to have the free-form dye look to them.  Also, some of them are hand-dyed as well, so it might be close to what you want.  I would show you links, but there are tons and I don't know what type of fabric you are specifically looking for.

I did find this particular page though... http://www.fabric.com/quilting-fabric-batik-fabric-artisan-batiks-patina-handpaints-rainbow-batik.aspx
That's a good example.

Thanks for the help!  Cheesy
I'm thinking that I might go a different route for making my dress, but I really appreciate knowing what's out there Smiley
