Fabric researches

Someone on bhuz asked about the fabric I used for the White Baladi dress. I don't have a clue. I saw it on sale at Fabricland years ago, and I just got about 4 metres of it on spec. That would have been 7 or 8 years ago, and I've never seen it since in any fabric shop I've ever visited.

It's beautiful stuff though, so I wanted to try & find out what it is. Spandex House was my first port of call, without success. Spandex World, though, seems to have something very much like it, called Glissenette.

I may have to buy some in another colour, but I will NOT do so yet. Not while I still have a ton of fabric in the stash that's specifically earmarked for a Costume Project. Maybe once I get through making the Hyacinth.

Speaking of buying costume supplies, I've just had a bumper postal harvest of costume goodies this morning. Turquoise AB crystals for the new Turquoise with flowers (very pretty!). Lace and more crystals in hot pink and clear AB for the Hyacinth! Squeee!!! I love it!
