Cotton/Rayon

This is a wonderful woven cotton brocade.  The base fabric is slightly heavier than batiste weight.  The abstract floral has a mottled pattern outlined with “eyelashes” in cream.  Slightly sheer (you’ll need a lining) the hand is a little crisp but pliable.  Beautiful for vintage style dresses, tunics or light weight jackets.
