Fabric Give Away!! 100% Silk Peau De Soie/Duchess Satin



Friends, followers, family, fabric-lovers and other things starting with 'F'.

It's give away time over at Julia Bobbin for all those lovers of silk and shiny.

I am giving away to one lucky person two meters of one of the most beautiful fabrics I have ever let my Janome sink its teeth into.


The fabric is 100% silk Peau de Soie, also commonly known as Duchess satin and its in a hard-to-find royal purple. I have been on the hunt for more of this fabric in other colours ever since I found it but can only find whites/baby pinks/baby blues. If anyone knows anywhere online that you can purchase this fabric in other colours, let me know!

There are so many things that I love about this fabric:
  • Firstly, its silk.
  • Secondly it is perfect for evening gowns and vintage numbers
  • Thirdly its royal purple.
  • Fourth, its Peau de Soie - French for 'Skin of Silk'
Have any of you used this fabric before? Its incredible! It is so strong and has so much bounce in it that it looks like its pumped with air! Take a look at this picture of the fabric folded on its side.




I made a dress out of it a while back using Burda 7494 and I got compliments on it every time I wore it. The colour is so rich and vibrant and shiny. What I love about the body of duchess satin is that even when I took the dress off, it sat up like there was still someone inside it, its incredible! (And admittedly, slightly creepy).


I loved the fabric so much that I bought me another two metres of it and Im looking forward to giving it away to a fellow reader who can delight in it as I did.


Here are the fabric details:

2 metres (2.18 yards) of royal purple Peau de Soie (Duchess satin)
130cm wide
100% silk
Dry clean only
Value $35AUD per metre
Side effects: when you touch this fabric people have been known to lose their vocabulary and be reduced to only the sounds ‘ooo and ahhh for at least five minutes.

To win this fabric simply comment on this post.

All entrants will be put into a hat (well your names will be any way - its logistically impossible to fit actual people into the hat) and one lucky person will be announced the winner.

Entries are open to everyone from anywhere in the world.
Entries close on March 2nd, 2012 Australian EST
One random winner will announced in a blog post on March 4th, 2012.



Oh how delicious! Speaking of delicious, has any one seen the Give-Away over at Thinking in Shapes?

Ummm ... it's a Mad Men dress! In fact two mad men dresses, one in an extra small and one in a medium. Lady Danburry has made them in honour of the Mad Men Challenge. True story!


Isn't it lovely? The thing that really tickles my fancy is that it's called ... the Julia Dress That makes me happy in all sorts of selfish ways. I'm only human...

Check out Lady Danburry's blog to win one of the dresses.

How you are you going with your Mad Men dress?
Found your inspiration dress yet? Picked the fabric?
I have been busily stalking following many of your blogs and there are some mouth-watering ideas popping up.
Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

UPDATE
I have recieved a few emails from readers to say that they are unable to leave a comment due to some blogger glitch. I'm convinced it has to do with gremlins.

  4. NY Fashion Fabrics (online) have an AMAZING range of beautiful silks for quite reasonable prices. There is a huge range of colours - they even have silk faille *gasp* gosh-darn I want to make a coat-dress out of it. Except that 6 yards would cost me upwards of $250. Eep! Still cheaper than buying in a store though isn't it.
    Anyways - I'd love to win the fabric. And you will definitely find what you're looking for on that site - I can spend quite a lot of time dreaming on there. :-)

  30. Hi Julia, I am what I call a silk slut, will do anything and everything to get my hands on some. I do however have an amazing source for silk in Australia, AND it's in VIC. I used to make bridal gowns and this is some of the best silk I have ever used, the quality is breathtaking. They also send out free samples and the service is fantastic, they are just as silly about silk as I am! :) go to... www.silktrader.com.au I will now apologize in advance to your hubby....

  60. I made my sister's wedding dress out of white silk peau de soie. Recently, I made her a wool coat and used the leftover bits from her gown as the lining. I dyed the pieces a nice tomato red and surprised her with a wonderfully soft and personal surprise.

  64. That's a fabulous fabric, and the dress as well. I found the dress I am going to make for the challenge, I am very excited to start sewing it. I even started a blog just so you could link the project back to it. Now, it's more time consuming than actually sewing the dress to post in it. But thanks for the motivation.

  85. Well, typically, fabric always looks better in real life than in pictures on the web, because there is so much more to it than the flat one dimensional image we see. But, my oh my, the photos make the silk look absolutely amazing! I can't even image how incredibly stunning, soft and luxurious is must actually be. I would love to win, but if I don't, I'll come back to this posting often to drool and dream!
    Thank you soooo much for the giveaway!
