This is a pretty vague concept so far … I have this unusual black and grey fabric, 100% polyester (because I don’t care!), woven thistle / pomegranate pattern that’s rather 16th-century by way of Art Deco, with a nice supple hand.
So far, I’m thinking it’ll be good as a kirtle, perhaps with sleeves. There’s only 4.3 yards, it’s 60″ wide, and I want to piece it to show off the pattern. Over this, I want to wear a loose, sleeveless gown in black, probably wool from The Stash, perhaps trimmed with black velvet, if there’s enough in The Stash.
