Just bought 7 yards of black dupioni silk from fabrics.com. Hope it’s black enough — the color was called “midnight” and it was on sale, so I worry. I just keep reminding myself: this is a confection. It’s all about fantasy.
In other news, if I can design a reasonable pattern, Mom might embroider a waistcoat for Thomas. We were looking at a lot of costume books (while waiting during Thomas’ eye surgery), and she reminded me how much she enjoys embroidery. She’s so weird. But hey, I’ll take advantage 😉 A floral-ish pattern down the center of a waistcoat, with some beading, would look awesome and really add flair.
