I’ve had this 1560s Venetian project planned for a long time but hadn’t really gotten bitten by the bug to make another Renaissance gown for a while. But now I’m bitten again.
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.
