This is the last day for the silk sale at Fabricmart, they have this for 10 bucks a yard: http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/Fire-Red-100-Silk-Satin-Organza-53W.html

What would the minimum yardage be for a Mina inspired gown? I say inspired because a silk satin organza would behave very different from the fabric the movie gown is made from, but it could still look very neat.

Ty, I think I'll wait till I find something a bit more affordable.

Oh, the fashion plate she based it on was a harper's bazar, I always thought it would look amazing in red so if you were looking in the inspired by area I can scan the design and the plate?
I also have the Eiko book-just shared it but lj is displaying some WP code interestingly) so can look for more.

If you have the plate handy that would be awesome. =) I remember you posting it way way back when. The sale is over now so this is going to be a one day back burner project unless I find a very good deal or go for a blend.

I will be able to scan this weekend :) I have the Eiko book as well (in a small scale) so will grab everything else I can too :)

My other reply disappeared sorry- I was lucky and got red silk taffeta for $NZ10/m and the one length! I also just cut all my leaves from scrap- they are easier to do by cutting strips of the same size to make into the them but it does save a lot of fabric :)
