So today I had a client come to see me so I can take her measurements, she is getting ready for her grandchild's wedding and wants something special made. She already had the fabric and said she has had it for "a while" she knew what she wanted to have made but was not comfortable with leaving it with someone to work on. She came here I took her measurements and during the course of the conversation I asked how long she has had the fabric.
Good job I was sitting down, she said it was from the 1930s!!!! I could not believe my ears the 1930s!
The hand is so soft and beautiful not at all like the Chinese silk of today! Below is a picture of the fabric and the design she wants to have made. What a privilege to be working on such wonderful fabric!
