Still More Silk

Yesterday I summoned up my courage, reviewed my shopping cart one last time, and clicked "Place Order." In the next few days I should find a package in my mailbox from Dharma Trading Company, containing three yards of silk gauze.

Because I still need a veil, after all. I'm not a fan of tulle, and the thought of having a silk veil is just too good to pass up. The sample I got from Dharma is just perfect (though it's difficult to judge how well something will drape from a three inch square!), and at less than $2.50 per yard, the pricetag can't be beat.

I love it when the details fall into place.


  1. Sounds dreamy. I can't wait to see your gown!

  2. Oooo! I can't wait to see it done! :)

  3. I can't wait to see it all together!

    I think you will like the silk gauze from Dharma. I used it a few years back to make an overgown for a Civil War era ballgown. It was dreamy! The only thing about it is that it was *SO* slippery to work with - it wanted to grow and stretch every which way. But I think for a flowy veil it will be perfect.


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much for stopping by!
