Shiny squeals of joy

A parcel arrived from sartor. We got rather a lot of this one because we need to disguise the trailer as a four poster bed ( john has to build the frame before I can get to work). On thier website it looked bright orange, but in reality it’s quite a subtle salmon pink

And this one is for me, and in the flesh it’s far more glorious than the web pic suggested. It’s sogdian, c7th, and I don’t know what I’m going to do with it yet- it’s so rare for sartor to do an early pattern in silk rather than blasted rayon that I thought I’d just grab some whilst I could.

Maybe I could make the Byzantine empress outfit that I lusted after as a child?
