Jonquil sent me this link … the corset is stunning, of course, but for me the attraction is that the skirt and shawl are dictionary fabric. Dictionary fabric! I've nearly gone blind trying to figure out WHICH dictionary was used. I should email , the artist, and ask for a picture … it can't be American Heritage, because the text wraps around the line art … maybe MW2?
Of course, if you read through the comments you'll find that she found the fabric on a remnant table ($2/yard! Silk!) in San Jose and that it's all gone, now.
Jonquil predicted that, if *I* had turned up yards and yards of silk dictionary fabric at $2/yard, that I would have made a shirtwaist … maybe. I'd also think seriously about making from it.
Not that this will ever happen NOW … sigh. At least I know the fabric is out there somewhere, and being loved (because who wouldn't love dictionary-print silk?).
Needless to say, if anyone finds any more of this out there, I'm offering a modest reward and shipping costs!
