today begins my continuation of the study of the fluffy or pettiskirt as it is commonly known. my order of silk gauze and silk chiffon arrived this week and i promptly stained it with a very dilute coffee wash to soften it's bright white. silk has just the bounce and float and natural fiber i was aching after.
i always feel more than a little sad for the silk worms who gave their lives for this beautiful textile but it also makes me savor their legacy of finery even more completely.
one (or 2?:) tiny sized fluffy for the beautiful photographic capturings of fuloflyfe's baby sized clients is now happening in my world.
