Scalamandre Le Tigre Silk

My Workroom Wednesday post will not be here today because of some technical difficulties with photos but it will be back next week.  We’ll call today, “What’s on my Worktable Wednesday”  and it’s a good one !

I’m sure you recognize this Scalamandre Le Tigre Silk velvet.  It is one of Scalamandre’s most sought after fabrics, retailing for $1500 to $2000 a yard !  It is hand woven in Italy made of 60 % silk 30% cotton and 10% viscose.

I’m going to be making 6-8 pillows from this yummy fabric.  I had a pair of pants very similar to this in the 90’s….. Oh, I wish I had saved those pants so I could rock them while sewing these pillows.

Maybe I’ll at least play this song from Marie Antoinette while sewing……

Check out James Andrew lounging on the Le Tigre Silk chaise, no, he calls it a “Dos a Dos” throne wearing his Yves Saint Laurent aubergine “Eton” boots.

Let’s face it, if you’re going to be lounging on that you need the aubergine boots on…………….. or nothing at all !

Do you love it ?

Tammy, I just can see you in your pants while sewing too cute!! had to laugh. Boy I would be scared to death to cut into fabric that expensive, Yikes, but I do not sew. That might be a good reason for me not to cut. Enjoyed your comment this morning. If you really think about it every room started with something to inspire you. I am so analytical about everything, it is ridiculous. Glad you enjoyed the post. Have a great day making pillows, Kathysue

I do hope you share photos of the finished product!

Hopefully you will be modeling them....in either the boots or the nudity.

Thanks for your visit to my blog and comments. I think that fabric would make lovely workshop curtains...except....then i could never use my circular saw as the dust might get to them! LOL

It is how much? I really don't know anything about fabrics! I'd be scared to death to cut it...oh my!

Ooh, I'm so jealous!!! Let's face it, this is why we own workrooms- so we can play with fabulous fabrics like this! :)

Is it wrong to be physically attracted to a fabric? I don't think so...Which is good, because I am. Rawr.
