when silk and lurex make a baby
When silk (an animal based natural fiber) and lurex (a yarn made from a metallic fiber that has been woven together) make a baby, this is what you get.
I found this amazing textile at my local fabric store for a mere $40 a yard. Using a coupon, yes this smart lady clips coupons when it comes to fabric, bought 1 1/2 yards and transformed it into a pretty snazzy top, albeit see-through, which makes it not just snazzy, but sexy too.
And it should be!
Did you know Julie Numar's Catwoman bodysuit was made out of lurex for the 1960's television series? That was some sexy costume!
