The Lion Sleeps Tonight Sueded Silk Double Panel Print - Sands/Reds
This fabric is sold Per Panel, not per yard. Each panel measures between 32 and 34 inches, and there are two complete panels on each length.
So, like an Abba song, I took a chance on some REALLY beautiful silks, These are from a tie manufacturer, and they are panel prints. They have lovely conversational prints, and they are sold in the highest end stores. But how to use them? Well, of course, you can turn them into ties. That's a lovely given. The panels are interestingly laid out (on the bias, with several motifs in different directions to maximize the tie utility).
But you know what I would do? I'd use them for super luxe linings! And heavens - at this price for 100% silk? You can line jackets, coats, dresses, skirts. I love to use a surprise lining in my garments, and this makes it a no-brainer!
