Fabrics for the BIG Project, Plus Others

The fabrics from Gorgeous Fabrics came yesterday, and they are indeed gorgeous! These are the wedding dress fabrics, first the mesh:

and this is the ivory twill. Not much to see in a photo but it really is beautiful.

The color is lighter in real life.

asked how the fabrics will be combined in the dress. I haven't read the instructions all the way through, but my first impression is that they are basically layered together and treated as one fabric during construction. That means I need more ivory silk in a lining weight, oh well.

Of course, I saw some other pretties that I had to have. The next two have nothing to do with the wedding, I just thought they were too nice to pass up. Both are silk chiffon.

The ecru and lavender is actually a border print with a gradient band of lavender along one selvedge. It's very sheer so I'm not exactly how I'll use it, but I do love it.

This one is cheerful and pretty, not as sheer as the other one.
