"Queenie" - A smooth silk Dupion in a rich, deep garnet red. A black weft gives this fabric soft shadows and depth when in the folds and the sheen of the red is really lovely. Smooth Dupion has less "slubs" or fibre knots than the usual Dupion and has a softly crisp feel to it. It creases really well like a Taffeta and drapes and shapes wonderfully. If you would prefer Catherine Parr to have a rich brown dress instead of deep red then PLS2004 "Cafe Noir" is offered as an alternative.
