French Costuming

All I have to say is, perronelle is an awful, evil woman.

She pointed me to this fabric:




And then you have to look at this. Marguerite de Valois in all her splendor at the Valois Tapestries.




The price was definitely *not* G Street prices. Not cheap, but not the $50-$70 range. This one was definitely doable.

And the French costumer fainted with joy . . .

PS. It is 100% silk taffeta too. Or so they claim. We will find out.

I'm telling you! I had sworn to myself not to purchase any more fabric! However, I have learned a valuable lesson. When you find what you're looking for, at a price you can afford at that particular moment, grab it. It may not be there again at a later date.

I am jumping with joy!

Thank you. Fabric porn is definitely a good definition for this. :-)

It will take a while before I have the final product, but I am very excited about it! I will definitely post the pics!

Hmmm :) If that's the eBay seller I think it is, I've used them for quite a bit of silk. I've always been pleased.

Entirely possible. Maybe we can swap fabric crack info?

I do not WANT to know where you got it. Because no matter how much it cost, I can't afford it. And I WANT it, with a lust that scorches and burns like the fires of Vesuvius.

Eeeevil women that thou art.
