It came in two colorways, a teal and a mint green. As is usually the case, I began obsessively looking for some similar fabric and a pattern that would work to make an inspired version. The interesting thing about this dress is the back bodice, which is shirred. However, replicating that feature was not important to me. I just wanted a dress with the general shape and similar fabric.
However, if you are interested in shirring, Gertie has a fabulous tutorial on her blog. After much searching, I finally found the perfect fabric at denverfabrics.com. It is a mint green rayon challis with a very similar floral print to the anthro dress. It appears they have sold out of it, or I would link to it. I used Simplicity 2886, View B (the blue floral print dress on the pattern envelope) because the bodice is very similar to the front bodice of the Verdant Slip Dress and the straps are spaghetti straps. Also, the back bodice calls for elastic at the top so that you get a gathered effect, ever so slightly similar to the shirring. This dress was super easy to sew up and I did not have to make any alterations. This seems to have been the case lately for me on Simplicity dresses--I hope it continues.
