2 1/2 Yards of Embroidered Wide Silk Dupioni - Gold Tones on Ginger
Please note: the price shown is for a single piece of fabric measuring 2 1/2 yards.
Oh. My. Goodness!!!! This fabulous silk is embroidered allover with a floral motif in rayon and metallic threads. And it's wide! It's used in formalwear that sells in top boutiques for over $1200. Make your own with a pattern like Cashmerette's Upton. If separates are more your style, you can make a fabulous pair of cigarette pants using Simplicity 8514.
A note about Silk Dupioni - I know silk scares a lot of people. But dupioni is probably one of the easiest fabrics to work with. It doesn't slide as much as other types of silk, and you can even wash it! It will lose its luster and soften up considerably if you machine wash and dry it. You must pre-shrink it if you want to throw it in the dryer, but this is a very forgiving fabric, so have fun with it!
