When doves cry Milly silk SOLD


Milly does THE best prints and this tri-colour (off-white, grey and deep navy) doves silk is right up there as one of my favourites.  I went searching for this fabric and was very happy when I found it.


I have had a number of people ask about decent dress-lengths of good silks and this one fits that bill.

The fabric is a very dense silk georgette and is reasonably opaque, and the length here is 4 metres.  So fabric and length means lots of options for planning dresses other garments requiring length beyond a couple of metres.

As far as I can see, Milly only made tops and blouse out of this fabric.  They look pretty good with various coordinates like grey, as you can see here.

In this image you can see the fabric scale.  It is very Escher-like…inspired by if not an actual Escher technique. And I have to say, the colours are really well balanced.  Maybe that repeat is easier designed than I imagine to be?


I think of the lovely demi-couture dresses of Bottega Veneta for this fabric.  And the swishy loveliness of the Nina Ricci dress that follows.



So, to the details.  This Milly silk is 115cm side and as I said, the length is 4 metres.  I paid close to US30 a metre for this, and will keep the fabric at $30 (AU) a metre.  So the full piece is $120.  I guess if there are not takers for the full dress length I would be prepared to offer 2 pieces of 2 metres each, but I would not cut the fabric until both pieces were accounted for.  I would need to post the full length in a medium-sized satchel priced at $13.40.
