I think I may have found a suitable fabric for the overdress, but would really like to get some more eyes on it to check.

It's actually an upholstery fabric, but is luckily not on the thicker side. It holds shape well without being overly bulky. I have been trying to avoid dyeing as I don't have a huge enough pot to do so in.

I'm not a judge, but that looks like a lovely color and texture. It sounds like the weight is pretty suitable too.

It might be a little subtle on the texture side, but I think it could work. Have you got a sample to check it out?
Then you can make sure both texture and color fits in and works with your fabric for the inner dress.
