Fabric Samples

I found my underdress fabric!  Today I got several samples from OnlineFabricStore.net – and the red dupioni silk is ABSOLUTELY perfect for the under dress.  I also got samples of the silver chiffon (terrible!) the silver crystal organza (close, but too too sparkly for my taste), and lavender dupioni (not quite vibrant enough color).

Here is a picture of the red dupioni and crystal organza.  My cell phone totally doesn’t do the color justice.

For those of you unfamiliar with dupioni silk – here’s the jazz.  Dupioni is a shimmering silk that is created by weaving silkthreads of two different colors into a weave that seems to change colors as the silk is moved around in different lights.  Because it is a natural fabric it has occasional flaws which will be perfect for our more natural/casual feeling wedding.  It doesn’t wrinkle very much, and is cool in summer (just think – places like India are where dupioni is traditionally worn)

So excited!  I went on another swatch-ordering spree – this time at Fabric.com.  Fun times!
