I've been obsessing over [livejournal.com profile] padawansguide's sari Regency gown. It's so, so pretty.

Today at the thrift store I found a pale pink silk chiffon sari (? I'm terrible at fabric. It's definitely silk, though), all decorated with silver embroidery, and I bought it. It was $5. There was no way I could have passed that up. I have no idea if the wide border embroidery would be suitable for Regency, but it seems like a pretty traditional Indian design. If I had to guess, I'd say it almost definitely existed in India of the period at the least. And I love it. It's not the paisley - it's the more geometric design. Anyway, even if I decide against using the geometric border, it has a simply lovely silver embroidery throughout the length.

I just need to decide on a dress style. And a when.

After the Mandalorian. Must finish that.
