White poly-lycra knit dress, with no interfacing, hardware or closures. It takes the wearer a bit of turning the garment over and over to figure out how it goes on, but that’s the fun part. I actually sewed the drape on upside down, so that’s why it doesn’t drape as gracefully as the mag photo. Next time, though, I’ll try cutting the drape as a single layer. The back view looks awesome, too, though I forgot to photograph that.
Edited to add navy blue version:
Drape cut from a single layer, lower front and back did not have to be underlined. My niece liked the white dress her cousin was wearing so I made the blue one for her.
poly-lycra, added self-fabric as lining
