Oh yes, you read right. One lucky follower of either Debi's blog or my blog will win their choice of 1.5 yards of silk. I will ship internationally, so it is open to anyone.
I have selected three silks from my stash in which I purposely bought in excess so I could give it away. These are all lining fabrics, but would also work great for some lingerie sewing (french knickers, tap pants, slips . . .)
The first choice you have is a pastel, mint green. The color in this photo is pretty close to actual. Like most of the silks I purchase, this one was simply labeled 100% silk - with no further description. I believe it is Silk Habotai. It's very light weight and has a slippery feel (though not like charmeuse)
Your second option is another green (I love the color green). This one is more aqua marine, and is a bit lighter than it is coming across in the photo. Again, only labeled 100% silk, so I can't say for sure what kind of silk it is, but it's one of my favorite lining fabrics. I have used this type of silk to line this dress and this skirt. It feels a bit like a cotton lawn, but better. It pairs really well with wool and rayon as the main fabrics when used as a lining.
Your third option is a patterned silk. This would be such a great print to line a pencil skirt with - that's what I'm hoping to do with the half that I keep for myself. I've got a deep red wool that I got from a friend and I think it will be just perfect. This fabric feels like a silk crepe to me, I'm not able to say for sure.
So, how can you enter? It is so simple. Just leave a comment telling me which of the three silks you want to win and what you most likely would use it for.
**UPDATE** Newbie alert! As this is my first giveaway, I forgot to include a deadline. I'm updating this post to say that the time to enter this giveaway will close at midnight on Sunday, February 10th. Please get your entry in before that time to be included.
Live in this moment and love life!
