madamemodiste: (fabric shopping)
When Beth and I met up the other day, she had a gift for me! Many yards of a striped cream and silver silk and many yards of a solid silver silk!! She bought them and decided she wasn't going to use it, and instead of returning it (perhaps she couldn't?), she gifted them to me! I'm so lucky!



I know I usually see 19th century in fabrics, but I really see 18th century here. What should I make? If it helps you to visualize, the stripes are 1" each.

Popped into Walmart today to see what was on the $1/yd table, and they had a ton of this soft and drapey black stretch net! I got 6 yards, but I'm not sure what I want to do with it.

Ideas:

1) Sexy goth flared-bottom style skirt with netting underneath the bottom to make it flare out into the correct shape

2) fingerless elbow length mitts

Ummmm.... what else? My imagination is failing me. Help me out! The only thing I'm sure I don't want to make is any sort of cape.
