PRODUCT INFORMATION

This cloth is sold by the panel and each panel is 180cm in length.  For example, if you would like for 2 panels (360cm), enter the quantity '2'.

‘Lucia’s Garland’ is an ivory silk georgette base with an applied with a luxurious ivory, rayon floral design and border.  It is fantastic value and offers many possibilities.  Although beautiful tops and blouses come to mind, this would be an understated choice for a special event such as a wedding (for the beach or a garden ceremony).  This would also be a beautiful and quite luxurious robe, or make heavenly sleepwear.   

The fabric is 112cm wide, and each panel is approx. 180cm in length.  Each panel includes one 19cm silk and rayon ‘border’ at one end.  The border is on the cross grain (not along the grain).  The flower and vine/leaf motif starts with a little more density at each end, and peters out as the motifs meet in the middle.  You could certainly make tops with the embellishment going in the same direction.  The design is still workable as a full length dress though. 

For your cloth edit consider:  loose or wrap tops, with the opportunity for a statement sleeve; blouses; dresses (eg. wrap, kaftan, trapeze, tunic); a kimono or robe (short or full length).  The choices are endless if you have a wedding or special event in mind.

Silk georgette is delicate as it is so fine, but it’s comparatively strong.  It’s absorbent, warm, resilient and quite elastic.  It is perfect for a transitional garment, but given the right style, would be wonderful throughout summer.

Cloth Care:

While silk is strong, it is very elastic and thus machine washing is out of the question.  The general advice is to Dry Clean only.  Hand Wash at your own risk.  If you risk hand-washing, always test a sample of fabric first.  If a printed fabric ‘bleeds’ then you need to Dry Clean.  Wash solid colours separately.  Silk can only be hand wash using a gentle detergent such as a baby shampoo or specialist silk detergent as the chemicals and bleach in regular washing liquids and powders will damage the cloth and make it dull.  If hand washing use cool water.  Hot water is harmful.  Wash inside out and handle the garment or cloth with care.  Gently move around the soapy water.  You can let it soak for a little while.  Rinse by gently holding the cloth or garment in your hands until the water runs clear.  Do not bleach, wring, or tumble dry. Do not spot clean silk.  Dry flat in shade as the sun can yellow light colours.  Use a warm iron and spot test.
