Like the suiting fabric from my Peplum Dress, this material was found in my husband’s grandfather’s attic. I think it’s like FROM the 70s. It’s a cotton, as far as I can tell. And man – it’s brilliant. The gold leafing actually has a bit of shine to it… amazing.
I used this tutorial from The Big Oak Tree as a launching point (I ended up cutting the rectangular pieces into A-line shapes, and I didn’t make a bow).
