I told you :)
This piece has been in my stash for a year or more; a gorgeous European silk metallic constructed of two layers.
|Two layers held together with gold metallic thread|
The drape is wonderful yet it is perfect for more structured garments as well. I bought this to make a Chanel style suit, something inspired by Chanel's Spring '09 couture collection.
If you have a Pantone chart, the color is close to Pantone Winter White 11-0507 TPX or Cloud Cream 12-0804 TPX.
And that's why I'm giving it away. It has a warm tone which is a no-no for me. This is a generous 3 yards, 52" wide, plenty to make a stunning outfit cause there's no matching involved. And, you could pair it with silk chiffon as it appears the Chanel suit above has done on the sleeves. I'd even insert silk charmeuse in the front slit on skirt :)
On the other hand, if you're unfamiliar with silk, this fabric is not difficult to work with and could be a great project for a basic suit or jacket, and it won't cost you a dime :), well, almost. I'd still recommend you buy silk thread and silk lining...
|The fabric can be used on both sides to create a design effect|
