The question now is what color do I want? I could still go traditional and pick a nice ivory or champagne or candlelight. Or I could go bold and pick red or black or even purple.
I'm thinking pink. This . . .
I want to make my wedding dress in a silk cotton blend. I have this idea that it will be cooler, less stiff, and more comfortable. I also really like the texture of silk cotton. However, the exact color has just not materialized in a cost effective way.
Here are the cotton silk swatches I ordered from fabric.com. I took these pictures outside to hopefully give you a truer color representation. The champagne and the baby pink in the top right and bottom left corners respectively.
I also took a chance and ordered some silk dupioni swatches. I love the color of the sample on the right.
