Both your pictures only really show a cape. I'd make the cape from trigger, gaberdine or a similar simple twill in a bottom weight fabric.

Here it is a reference pic: http://fangirlisms.com/wp-content/up...mas-haruhi.png
I was wondering what fabric should I use for the white hem, because it doesn't seem to be simple furry fabric but something...fuzzy/fluffly? xD I don't know if I explained well D: I also need advice for the belt material ^

Thanks!
picture doesn't work.

This is the basic sketch I've done.

I'm thinking of using a duchess satin for the dress, but I'd like to do the panels using the wrong side of the fabric vs the right side. Is there a noticable sheen difference between the sides? And would you recommend the fabric?

Patternwise, my two patterns are http://www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcar...8&cat=1&page=1 and http://www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcar...2&cat=1&page=1
no satin, go taffeta if you want it dressy, but it really doesn't have to be. I'd use a very subtly printed fabric, calicos were very popular, and maybe even over-dye it to soften the color, that will give you a really good 1860's feel.
