We must follow the leaders in every good thingie

After work on Friday I got my flu shot, then stopped at the Goodwill store that often has lovely fabric. (Last Sunday I found a heavy bleached linen kitchen curtain there. I'm turning it into an apron.)

MOTHERLODE! For $12 I walked off with over six yards of heavy yellow drapes that feel like they may really be silk. The color would look awful against my face, but will make a fabulous lining for the Italian Renaissance outfit I'm putting together. I also got some gaudy cotton brocade table-runners and tablecloth, for detachable slashed sleeves.

Then I'll need a mask for the ball, and a hairpiece.

I will post pictures as I make the outfit.
