Hi and welcome…a quick word about this blog…I'm a mad fabric collector but I've gone a bit overboard, so I've started this blog to re-home some gorgeous, top-quality fabrics at really great prices.

(Australia only)

The embossed pattern and scroll effect is the really eye-catching aspect of this fabric though. (more…)
Please hold off on emails – I need to check whether or not I still have this piece. Thanks.
I’m rather partial to silk georgettes and especially like them when there are a couple of layers, especially a heavier plain colour georgette underneath. This seems to give the fabric a weight and swishy-ness that it a little bit irresistible and totally great to wear.
