PLS4068 ~ "VIOLETTA"
Gorgeous soft folds of a Habotai silk in the prettiest soft shade of lilac. Habotai is such a good silk to use for miniatures. It behaves just like the heavier Dupion and Taffeta silk fabrics when it comes to pleating and gathering but is a lot lighter in weight. Habotai is such a versatile fabric. It's soft, very fine and lightweight and drapes really well but if you want to pleat it or press folds into it it has the body to hold them until they are pressed out again - very clever! It is also of a weight and lightness that it is suitable for 1:24, 1:48 and even soft furnishings in 1:144 - and remember, you don't have to embroider plain fabrics. Some of us can't. you can paint a design if you want to. Back in history a painted dress or skirt etc. wasn't unusual at all.
