Look what arrived in the mail today! A sample of indigo dyed 100% silk velvet from Färbehof. Isn't it gorgeous?! I think it will look perfect with Maria's handwoven fabric. Together they will become the mi-parti overdress I talked about in my last post.
Before you get too exited, the actual making of the dress will have to wait a bit. First I have to order the blue velvet and wait for Maria's weave to arrive, but also I should first make the red wool dress that will go underneath.
That doesn't stop me from fantasizing about it though. I would love to find some beautiful bezants to sew on the velvet, or maybe make some myself, if I find the courage to do so.
