RE: [Authentic_SCA] Digest Number 3115
- I have a Question about Brocades, Silk and Velvet/Velveteen.
Santa was really good to me this year and gave me some Geogous Royal Blue
Velvet and Deep Burgundy Velveteen...... What would I be able to use for
what time periods????? I can not exactally give it back or return it. The
Colors would look amazing with my Skin tone and long red hair...
Santa AKA mom would be devestated If I did not use it in garb.... she
notices that kind of stuff.. Its not like a really bad wedding give that
"accidentally" gets broken.... a friend of mine so elequently put it when I
told her my Delima..... I think thewe are cotton velvets to boot!
I am in a Pickle! Please advise...

- Wow! You are incredibly fortunate to have such lovely fabric!
If it was me, I'd use some of it to make a gown, and some to make a
sideless surcoat. And if there was any more of it left, I'd use it in
a cloak. As for periods, I'd suggest that you research mid to late
period and see what catches your eye.

luscious Elizabethan gown... If you don't have enough of either color
for a full garment, you could use it for trimmings - I have some black
cotton velveteen (fabric.com was giving it away with big orders a
couple of years ago) that I'm (eventually) going to use for the collar
and cuffs of a Burgundian gown, for example. That's a nice way to use
an expensive fabric when you don't have enough to make a full garment.
