@psychoaccess, Yeah, I feel that linen has a similar aesthetic to wool (at least, based on the wool in the movie) so I think it's a great alternative choice. I might eventually make a version in wool as well but I doubt I'd do it in the teal (ooh, maybe I'll make the Epilogue dress in black wool). I prowled the fabric district in downtown LA for that color because I didn't want to dye if I didn't need to. (What pattern are you using?)
I do think that it looks more velvety than wool but I don't know.
