just a little bit of sunday fabric porn…

my dad gave me some money for Christmas, and I couldn’t think of anything I wanted that cost that much, so obviously I went to look at sartor.

UNfortunately most of what they have at the moment is rayon or lurex (why bother?)

But they do have a cut velvet with silk pile…

It wasn’t cheap, and although dad had given me enough for a whole dress I decided I niether need nor want another grand fifteenth century gown (Mainly because I can’t think of a gown that allows me to make another batshitcrazy headress, but that’s a different problem)

So I decided I’d spend part of my christmas money and have 3/4 of a metre for accessories. This should be enough for a pair of sleeves, a hat, maybe some other bits.

Except this will look horrible with my scarlet red kirtle, and it won’t got with the yellow or green bits I’ve put by for new kirtles either. I need a new kirtle to go with my new sleeves, perhaps black or chocolate brown, and obviously in stonkingly good wool, so I’m currnetly eyeing some that will cost more than the sleeves…

I’m also ignoring Gareth’s repeated query about when I’m planning to open a 1970s tandoori restaurant.
