I bought two pieces of fabric in Toronto about 5 years ago. I stored them in a storage bag that has a plastic window insert (clearly not the best idea, as I now realize). The fabric is a heavily embroidered, but still lightweight, crepe back satin. It is a dark nay blue on one selvedge and then is graded down to a light sky blue at the other where the majority of the embroidery is.
Even though both pieces of fabric were in the same bag the smaller piece has lightened considerably and is now a purple colour that goes to mauve. There a re a few violet spots on it as well. The spots confuse me as the fabric was folded and the spots don’t correspond with a light source.
Does anyone have any ideas how I can change the colour back to normal? I was going to use the second piece as a godet in a strapless dress, but given the change I’m not sure it’s a possibility.
Any ideas would help. Thank you!
Nicole, feeling silly yet again.
