VF186-02 Character Taffeta - Gold and Black Shot Silk Iridescent Fabric


Not rated yet

Silk taffeta used to be the mainstay of court clothing, the choice fabric for nobility.  When the weft threads are different from the warp the silk is referred to as a shot silk, but can also be called a “chagneable” or iridescent.  The use of two contrasting colors provides the smooth weave with a depth of character that otherwise would be lacking.  We love the richness of Character Taffeta which weaves together a brassy gold weft with a fine black warp thread.  Construct a princess seamed top to wear with a skirt sewn from our black wool VF186-04, and a jacket of our tapestry VF186-01, or either brocade VF186-03 or -08.
