I picked the iridescent silver/black fabric for an 18th century quilted petticoat and couldn't be more pleased with the results. It's a lovely, lustrous grey shade of fabric, and the light weight and softness did very very well being embroidered and supported by the batting and lining. Needle (and basting) scarring was minimal, and the fabric didn't develop runs at all the way some do. That said, this taffeta is VERY lightweight, and quite soft. I would not recommend using it for anything that really requires taffeta's crisp properties to work. It's too light for a dress or skirt but could do well as a light blouse. Or quilted.
This is wonderful, fun material i'm using to make a pair of baggy cargo pants with large pockets, a drawstring parachute closure lock on the waist and leg bottoms. Still waiting for the chunky zipper in the mail to finish. Pictures to follow !
The silk taffeta is lovely. The color is beautiful and exactly what I wanted. I can't wait to start sewing with it.
