I bought some fabric, This fabric to be exact: http://www.denverfabrics.com/catalog_itemdetail.aspx?ItmID=XX897 My justification if that I want to make a washable 18th century gown (I'll use the same pattern as my silk one) Perhaps adding an en farreau back?

Being able to throw my regency gown into the washer (and not have to pay for dry cleaning/ ensuing eco moral dilemma) has made me seriously re-think how often I will make costumes from silk (For myself). Enter the Denver fabric e-mail, a brief period of browsing, and finding a 20% cotton 80% striped Linen for $3.95 in a color I like. Voila!
