I bet someone that reads this will have some answers.


I want to make a silk dress (The Cordelia one I have mentioned). For that I need silk in dark green. However, I am not sure what weave of silk I want. Duponi seems a little stiff for something described as having 'swirling skirts'. Satin would be too shiny (personal preference, there) I am thinking. Velvet is right out (although I do plan to use it for the overvest, like a good little geek girl). The jacquards I saw are tempting, but I don't know how they feel.

Now, assuming you all can help me with the weave choice, does anyone know just how to dye silk a nice dark green? 'Cause the only dark green I have seen in my online searches has so far been a velvet.. How difficult would it be? How messy? Am I better off if I keep looking?
