I went in search of crinkled taffeta… like that featured in this much love brown and autumn coloured skirt. I had dreams of making something similar – maybe in deep wine or burgundy colours.
I came home with this instead.
Unlike crinkled taffeta, perfectly smooth. Unlike crinkled taffeta, will require ironing. Unlike crinkle taffeta, will require lining. But it’s pretty!!! (The colours here are unfortunately misrepresented – you need to imagine a more greenish-brown-gold tinge to the fabric; far warmer than it appears in this shot. And also imagine, without the cat. I know it’s difficult as she sticks her nose in everything I’m doing, but she will not be part of the accessories to this outfit!)
