You can branch out into unexpected fabric mixes when making this dress with its two distinct halves. Knit fabric is ideal for the top half while a woven (warp and weft) is more suitable for the bottom. The idea here is contrast, so play with that! The turtle neck brings a strong sense of sobriety whereas the skirt is all about volume. The dress can be approached in either a glamorous or more countrified way, depending on the materials and colours you opt for. Many fabrics are possible as long as the skirt remains light and the top supple. It is possible in this pattern to make only the top half.
