The beauty of the Meg dress and top is that it can look completely different, depending on the fabric you choose. The pattern is drafted for woven fabrics and you can use anything from viscose, rayon, crepe, silk to cotton poplin, lawn, chambray, linen, double gauze etc.
If you opt for a fabric with drape, the garment will fall beautifully on your body and look more flowy, whereas more stable fabrics will result in a more structured garment that will hold its shape.
So, think of the style you are going for and choose a fabric accordingly. Another factor to consider is your skill level. Stable fabrics are easier to work with, so if you are a beginner seamstress, these would be a better choice, compared to drapey fabrics that can sometimes be more difficult to handle.
