Damask speaks to me! What do these say to you?
I’m hoping I’ll have enough for this bodice since it looks very simple but still have enough yardage to be able to make a later style 18th century jacket to go over my blue quilted petticoat. I’m hoping they will have more photosif I buy the auction catalog. Maybe not…
Oooo… I need to plan a gown for this fabric. It followed me home.
A lovely, deep & rich purple-shot-with-black silk taffeta:
I have a limited amount of this but can buy more if a project demanded a lot of yardage.
Blue & Silver with floral design damask:
I fell in love with this fabric, as it screams “make me into an 18th century gown!”, but alas, there was only 5 yards total on the bolt. We searched the store in hopes of finding another remnant hiding between the cracks. No such luck. I have to nix the robe a la française style or make it for a child. A miniature sample gown isn’t such a bad idea…
A potential client was looking at this blue fabric but it turns out the color doesn’t suit the wedding party colors. Now the fabric is screaming out to me to make a project from it, particularly because I have this lovely matching piece of satin charmeuse. I have 2.5 yards of the blue – it would make a lovely jacket, or skirt, or or…
This fabric has found a new home! I look forward to making a lovely victorian corset from a portion of my supply of this fabric. Enough will be left for another corsetry project or smallish garment if you fancy this fabric and still want to contact me about a project.
I’ve promised some updates to the site and I’ve gotten one started. I’ll be uploading more photos and descriptions to the fabric stash pages as time allows.
