Hallo everybody from a very cool UK.
I have a bit of a problem that has bothered me for years and now I wonder if Gatherings can come up with some ideas.!! About 8 years ago I visited a very expensive fabric mill in Scotland (Reid & Taylor) – their outlet shop attached to the factory where they sell bargain pieces etc. It is exceptional quality and very very expensive. When i saw such wonders and metre lengths set out at a fraction of the proper cost I went a bit mad (As you do) and bought quite a lot. Most of it is wonderful woven fabric and easy to sew. What I did also buy was about 3 metres of the most wonderful cashmere lightweight wool fabric, perhaps medium to lightweight in an exquisite duck egg blue (very light-coloured), will show every mark. I’ve realised this wasn’t a good buy as its 100% cashmere and I just dont know what to make that I can get some wear out of. We dont go to many upmarket social functions. I gather that cashmere is not a very forgiving fabric to sew and I’ve got £50 – £60 worth of this beautiful stuff in a drawer. Has anyone got any ideas and sewing tips for a fairly advanced sewer that is shaking at the heels with this prospect!!
