Sartorial Saturday: What is peachskin?
I'm making another version of the Colette Laurel with this super special fabric I got from Korea. I cut it out in a size 4 this time [last version was a size 8 and was huge!] and was thinking about what to do about underlining since it's pretty see-through.
Then I got to thinking that it was too sweet for me. I love the border print, but all of it together might be a little much for me.
I went wandering around for a fabric to pair with it so there's not as much of the floral print. I found a beautiful shade of blue, but the store had it labeled as peachskin.
Does anyone have an opinion about this type of fabric? The floral print is a double-gauze, so can I pair a 100% polyester microfiber with it?
On another note:
I signed up for Me-Made-May '13 over at So, Zo...What do you know? and pledged to wear at least 3 handmade garments per week for the month. I'm excited!
