Y is for Yards. Lots of them.

Kate Middleton wasn't the only one to enjoy something beautiful and extravagant this week.

Behold, ten yards of lavender brocade:

I took some shots with the flash and some without, so that you get a better idea of the actual color.

My modeling team was on hand to help out, of course:

(Doesn't he do that so well?)

Really love this one of Lucy Loo Hoo a lot.  It really captures how little she is.  I think the delicacy of the fabric compliments her.  ;-)

Having the fabric in my hands is very inspiring.  I've made an airtight schedule tomorrow that includes costuming.  

I won't be cutting into this gorgeous stuff for a while yet, but it will certainly not be able to hide...


  1. Rapunzel, Rapunzel,
    Let down your...brocade. ;)

  2. "That's a lot of brocade...." [/blood mustache thug]

  3. Faith, we did it! Congratulations! I have an award for you!!

  4. Are you still interested in selling some brocade? I need enough to make a front panel in purple and the bodice in lavendar for my 5 year old granddaughter.

  5. Flo: Sure! I have both colors now. I'm pretty sure they're 60" bolts. Just let me know how much you want and how you'd prefer to pay (Paypal, check in the mail). I'll sell it to you for $3/yd plus shipping/postage. That's rounding down from what I bought it for, just to make the math easier. I can estimate postage later when I'm not slammed at my job (this is a really BAD DAY - haha)

    Email me at and be sure to be specific in your subject line so that I don't bump you to spam. :-)
