Suggested fabrics: The Davenport Dress is designed for light to mid weight woven fabrics. Fabrics like cotton lawn or linen will make this a great dress for spring and summer. If you want it to be a bit fancier, it can be sewn from a silk or something with a bit of drape.

You may need to purchase extra fabric if your fabric has a heavy nap, is directional, striped, or has an obvious repeat.
