Inspired by an orange no.1

Okay, so here is my first post. While I was watching television, I was peeling a mandarin orange and yeah... I love to analyze everything around me, and so this is what I got by analyzing the orange. Don't worry, no oranges were harmed or anything (laughs). I have three designs based on an orange. Here is the first. This is my drawing and painting, it is slightly different than the sketch I did. I know, the right arm and leg are skinnier than the left. I did not bother to do the measurements since I am concentrating more on the fashion here. I gave the dress three shades of orange: pale orange for the dots, orange behind the dots, and mixed yellow and orange for the rest of the dress. It's a drawing, so I guess i should say what kind of material I would use if I were to make this dress (can't wait to go to a fashion school and learn everything!). The parts with the dots I would use a hard cloth and the rest would be a smooth cloth with a shiny surface, like silk maybe? So what do you think?
