Your Weekend Wow!

(If you’re seeing a different look to the blog it’s because the folks at WordPress are “in the process” of annually renewing my site-specific customizations. It’s been in the process for a couple of days now and it had better should look like its old self pretty soon.)

More drool-worthy fabric this week – for me, it shouts “Spring!”

Woman’s dress, England, 1845-1849. Plain weave silk with warp float patterning and printed floral design. Silk lace. Silk passementerie.

  1. I think I saw this dress in person at the LACMA museum in Los Angeles a couple years ago. I can’t find my photos from it but I didn’t notice how beautiful the fabric was from the distance I saw it.
    Now where’s the machine from The Jetsons that I can make that fabric from?
