The second is a 2 piece suit in the most lucious raspberry color, with Venice lace draping the front and sleeves. It has some pretty buttons on it, too. I've already started cutting them both up and have used the raspberry in the next set of hearts I'm making; for Susan! Susan listed her color preference as "raspberry, lime green and purple" and I have followed those guidelines. I've just finished piecing those two, and will post pics of those before I send them off.
Oh, I forgot to say, these suits were priced at $8.99, but were half price that day, so I got them both for that. I also got a burgundy silk blouse for $2.00. There were other silk blouses there, but they were in colors I thought I already had.
I really should purge my silk supply a little bit. I have whole shirts in quite a few colors now, and don't really need that much quantity. Anybody want to swap some beads, small crocheted or tatted motifs, or beads for some pieces of silk? Leave a comment with your email and we'll see what we can come up with.
