There is a very friendly man at Mood who works in the brocade and lace section. He always recommends wonderful fancy fabrics and he initially explained Gandini fabrics to me. They are super high quality, imported from Italy, and really fun! There is a print that looks like a Lizzard that I keep thinking about but I don’t know what to do with it… maybe another skirt? Another day.
For now, I cannot wait to wear this silk scarf in summer. It is a light sea foam green and it’s almost weightless. Hand stitched hems. It moved so easily it was most a challenge to cut and it was very delicate to sew. I tried to use a very thin needle to minimize damage to the fabric and I added a tiny second layer around the logo just to stabilize it a bit.
