GONE NOW THANKS
I look at this fabric and it makes me think of impressionist paintings. The basic palette is one of soft blues, pink and cream, but the soft mushroom outline adds a nice edge and stops the fabric from being too sweet, if that makes sense.
This is definitely a designer silk, and somewhere I have images of the original clothes, but I can’t find them right now. But I can also see this fabric in this lovely Dolce & Gabanna top…the ties hanging down the back of the neck are an original touch. This silk though would work with just about any top or shirt you might like to make, and skirts, summer shorts, a simple shift dress…
This silk is 112cm wide and the length is 2 metres. The price is $25 a metre/$50 for the piece. It can be sent in an $8.25 satchel. Please see here for full details of payment and posting. If interested, just click the email link below.
Don’t forget that silk can be washed. I wash all of my silks. Depending on the type of silk, there may be a bit of shrinkage or a slight change in texture (usually with the silk charmeuse), but I nearly always prefer the silks after they have been hand washed. Always test wash a small piece first so you know what to expect.
