I've been waiting for samples from www.naturtuche.de, to pick a fabric for a new fancy dress, and yesterday they arrived! I will be choosing this pretty madder red fine twill. It goes so well together with the purse I'm working on now. The blue silk will be used for tassels on the purse. The red dress will have brass buttons on the front and on the lower arms.
I am also keeping my eyes open for a pretty light blue wool, to make an over-dress from. I have been wanting an over-dress with buttons all the way from the neckline to the hem for some time now (five years or so?), so it's getting about time I do something about it!
This new outfit will also involve a new frilled veil with gold thread edges, a new belt with gilt mounts, a chapelet with mounts, some jewelry, new shoes, a pair of pattens... Oh well, a girl can dream, right?
