Christmas for me was an embarrasment of riches, mostly because Bob and I cannot give each other just one present. I scored big time, most especially with some Thai silk patterned velvet, which will be appearing soon at an event near you (but not before I get a supportasse and a new standing lace collar finished for 12th Night). It's very soft and floppy silk, so I'm gonna hafta interline the sucker, probably with something awsome and period, like coarse linen.
(Or fusible intefacing. I am evil that way, and I don't care who knows it. But for all practical "teaching the next generation" purposes, I'm using linen.)
(As far as YOU know.)
