Can you spot the anemone? I used to plant them for spring and they are the most beautiful flower. I’m sure that they must have been at least some of the inspiration for this beguiling print, those glorious shades of raspberry, musk, violet and magenta positively singing across the fabric.
The view above is of the fabric doubled. Being a silk georgette (with a gentle crinkle) the fabric is semi-sheer. When given a base under the fabric the colour has a chance to explode and really show off. That doesn’t have to be a lining or a second layer. You could wear a top underneath and drape a top in this beautiful silk over it and achieve the same effect. But if you did want to put a second layer to this fabric for a dress, top or skirt, you can see the effect it has.
Here’s a large scale gathers view of the fabric. It is draped over a white background cloth so this takes away from the intensity of the colours.
And here’s a flat, scale view, again draped over a white back-cloth.
But back to the true colours of this silk.
This silk is a designer fabric from New York. The width is 125cm x 2.40 – enough for a top, dress, skirt, whatever. The fabric price is $27 a metre/ $64.80 for the piece plus post (small satchel).
