Okay, so here is my situation: my fam just moved out of our old house (which we found out has mold! YICK!) and discovered my favorite, first, and only party dress (white) had a mold stain (black) on it! (WTH? No! :waaaah: )So now I'm making a new one that's peacock themed because they're just so pretty!
My only problem is the fabric. Its like there are only a few! And the only one I like I wasn't able to track down because it's one that a girl took a pic of her skirt... of, so I can't find that fabric: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1295/869063008_6b91f1d218.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.flickr.com/photos/rarebutterfly/869063028/&usg=__y-Aexgf0q0Ec1W4_9wzITA6_eyU=&h=500&w=333&sz=200&hl=en&start=63&sig2=uX49Oi2_Sl2NfxMNQYRL1g&zoom=1&tbnid=pBs5Ia6gcgFAmM:&tbnh=149&tbnw=99&ei=EZNYTc_INIGisAOZ-MGbDA&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dpeacock%2Bfeather%2Bfabric%26hl%3Den% 26sa%3DG%26biw%3D1076%26bih%3D630%26gbv%3D2%26tbs% 3Disch:1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=0&oei=PJJYTcK0FIb0tgPfz8yjBQ&page=5&ndsp=18&ved=1t:429,r:15,s:63&tx=30&ty=105
And the others I've found... the feathers um... alternate.... like up,down,up,down when I want fabric that has all the feathers pointing down. :lost: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.rainbowcrafts.eu/images/FabricQuilt/exclusively-quilters-royal-peacock-feathers-green-60027-6-lge.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.rainbowcrafts.eu/exclusively-quilter-royal-peacock-feathers-green-patchwork-fabric-60027-6-32574-0.html&usg=__8ZLm8cQ0WFWVeFwOBlh_0-OnDew=&h=396&w=400&sz=97&hl=en&start=266&sig2=7v2nKCBSu6y7MeAQMqqZ2Q&zoom=1&tbnid=hwqG8KZu8o5UGM:&tbnh=121&tbnw=122&ei=7ppYTbmjDI-msQPv38miDA&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dpeacock%2Bfeather%2Bfabric%26start%3D 249%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DG%26gbv%3D2%26biw%3D964%26bih %3D533%26addh%3D104%26output%3Dimages_json%26tbs%3 Disch:1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=797&oei=jJpYTfP3F4m2sAPjuIjDBQ&page=17&ndsp=17&ved=1t:429,r:13,s:266&tx=60&ty=70 (<- no!)
So I'm wondering if I can get help from the cosplayers of my favorite website! :bigtu:
Any other suggestions on the dress would be cool too! :D

Edit: Okay! I know what I'm gonna do now, I'll post a how to video of it for everyone when it's done too! =D

If you end up going the completely opposite way and don't want something so Directly Peacock...Joanns has this fabric
http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=zprd_10383107a

I've been dredging all the fabric stores I know and I haven't found much in the way of that...If I do find anything I'll post it up for you


When I looked in Bings Search engine for "Peacock Feathers facing down Fabric" this is what I found

This is the prom dress I was considering last year but I decided it was way to expensive but maybe it'll help you. http://prommafia.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/peacock-prom-dress.gif

Also I found this on ebay.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380331232406&hlp=false&rvr_id=229865399171&crlp=1_263602_304652&UA=%3F*S%3F&GUID=82396cf212b0a02652e63c76fff65b6b&itemid=380331232406&ff4=263602_304652#ht_3254wt_1139

And this is a little different. http://www.etsy.com/listing/60483446/one-yard-huge-giant-peacock-hand-printed

Good luck!
