the grove moves forward (only if you are not looking)

Remember this notion of a grove? It's made it's way to the next step of becoming and I hope all the scribbling in my notebook won't be for nothing. There will be hand dyed silk organza and this color example is not even close because there is just no rendering how it will look . Having never worked with this fabric before I have a lot of questions and little cloth to waste.

That will be gorgeous in silk organza. I work with it frequently. Organza is friendly due to the natural stiffness of the fabric, making it easy to sew, and the lovely translucency, which is only enhanced by dying or painting it. I use acrylics to get a watercolor wash effect. Keep in mind that the layering will affect the colors and values of the under and over fabrics. Use that to your advantage. Let us see what you do as you move along.
