This fabric is so pretty
Ohhhh~ is that dupioni silk? Looks nice!! Also, because it’s silk, it’ll dye really nicely!!
GOSHDARNIT!!! I am SO Happy for you OP because I saw that exact fabric and HAD to get it for Elsa…but there was only a yard left and I was so sad! I am SO glad someone bought this for an Elsa costume! *SQUEE*
Kennadesk: If I remember correctly it was written “Peau de soie” on mine, I think it is dupioni silk indeed.
It sure is dupioni, and I’m loving how the dress is turning out so far. My only disappointment with it has to do with how… crinkly it is. (not the mention the fraying dear goodness be careful with this stuff!) This picture shows the underside of some seams, but notice how wrinkly it is around them? Perhaps I’m just nit-picky or not as skilled with a sewing machine as I’d like to believe, but no matter what I do, I can’t get it to look nicer. Ah, well.
