So, I ordered this fabric a few weeks ago. It was a rayon challis jacquard, and while I knew the design had paisleys in it, from the pic on the website, they looked pretty hidden in the design. In fact, the design looked so subtle, I didn't think you'd notice there WAS a design until you got right up close.
But then this (finally) came in the mail today:
Don't get me wrong, it's GORGEOUS. But the fabric is insanely shiny, and both the paisleys and the giant roses that I somehow had either not noticed or forgotten were there catch the like like crazy and it's basically all you can see.
Soooo not SCA-able. Into the stash of "WTF do I make with this?" it goes. My roommate suggested a cocktail dress, but, when the heck do I ever need anything like that? I don't go anywhere I'd need a cocktail dress. But I have no clue what else I'd do with it. I'll figure it out someday.
