Fabric for Gowns

This page shows my available medium and heavy weight fabrics.  These can be used for dress jackets, boleros, and (with the exception of the Taffeta Velveteen fabrics) most of my skirts.

I can’t craft a ruffle from the taffeta velveteen – the fabric is so stiff that it won’t gather on my serger!  The exception is “Vintage Diva” – this skirt can be made from any fabric:

If you choose a skirt other than “Vintage Diva” for your custom made gown, it can look very nice to craft it from either matching satin or black satin.  The photos below show color combinations for Taffeta Velveteen and Satin.

Finally, I thought I’d append some pictures showing how nice these fabrics look when made into one of my Victorian Steampunk Ball Gowns.
