Ever since Mena (Sew Weekly) posted this I have been looking to recreated this dress.   I finally have the right pattern (Simplicity 4640) but I’m still not able to find a fabric I like. It should be turquoise and orange and if possible floral . I love the orange and turquoise color combo.

I love turq and orange too! but is a hard combo to find. Looking around there is a lot of pale blue and red, so getting some combo of that might be nice.
I’m loving this modern flower print
and if you want to push the boat out, Liberty has this beauty

thought of your quest when I saw this orange and blue print, and darted right over. ;) ..good luck in finding just the right fabric for your project!.
