This week I’m working on a skirt from Simplicity 2343 using this lush blue brocade. I was torn about which side to use because the bronze reverse is almost as fantastic.
It’s second time around with this pattern because I didn’t want to risk the fabric on an untested design. If it ends up being half as much of a favourite as my flocked wallpaper version, then I’m onto a winner.
Anyone else dabbled with brocade? Typing the word makes me feel olde-wordley and opulent, kind of Henry VIII-ish.
