Chapter 5: Fabric Selection
After trawling through my fabric stash I selected a range of fabrics in my chosen colour scheme, all of which I had hand-dyed previously, except for the nylon and novelty fabrics. The various types of fabrics included a range of cottons - cotton poplin, cotton lawn and muslins; some linen and rayon; a selection of silks, including wild silk, silk organza, and silk chiffon; and finally a few nylon organza and novelty fabrics, and nylon chiffon scarves.
Next I ironed and organized them into 2 broad groups based upon my colour scheme - blue/violets and yellow/oranges.
