What to do with this fabric!

Postby elensari » Wed Mar 27, 2013 11:43 am

Hello all,

I acquired this fabric this past fall, and I have no idea what to with it, so I am hoping you could help me out. :D

It is a light-weight wool embroidered with the vine pattern. The fabric is burgundy embroidered with green vines, silver leaves, and red flowers. I was originally thinking early bustle, like 69-71, but then I was thinking 1840's. I am open to anything, and I appreciate the advice.

but you always make amazing stuff, so whatever era you choose it will be gorgeous!! :mrgreen:

Renaissance comes to my mind. :D But like Frank said, whatever you make will be beautiful!
