Somehow (the actual facts are unimportant) someone sent you a length of Italian print 100% silk satin.
You know it’s expensive and precious but in your eyes, beautiful. It has 1% Lycra so a slight stretch, otherwise it’s a “roll around naked upon” type of fabric and taking a pair of scissors to it brings you out in a cold (or hot, depending on your age) sweat.
So what do you do with it?
The fabric has pagodas, flowers, swirls and leaves: it is multicolored but if waterboarded, you’d admit to pink and green.
So come on – you’re all brilliant at sourcing patterns and style, get your thinking caps on and send me answers.
Here are your Herculean hurdles:
Nothing above the knee – if it’s a dress or skirt
preferably with sleeves of any length
And you only have 1.8m (1.5yds) and 148 (55″) wide
I’d thought of StyleArc’s Lea but I am perfectly content to be proved wrong.
And edited for Mrs Mole: (god bless her meticulous attention to detail) – pagodas are on the sides and a swirly thing runs downs the centre – no archetypal architectural constructions on my ass! (if cut on the fold, I may add).
