drapy (but the price was right). I did block printing with Createx
white fabric paint on the silk after I dyed it to attempt to give the
illusion of the embroidered brocade roundels. It came out a little
too pale and subtle, but I kind of like the effect I got - and will
know not to dilute the paint so much if there is a next time. I'm
waiting for photos a friend took at Twelfth Night and will be happy
to post them here once I get my copies.
