Treadlette Tuesday: Roberta's Pick

Our Treadlette Pick for today is this gorgeous printed silk charmeuse. Roberta reports that she fell in love with this fabric while at the last Las Vegas buying show with Michele. Of course it had to follow her home!

This 100% silk was made in Italy. The pink and fuchsia roses glow against the deep black surface. Like all charmeuse silks, it moves and drapes like water falling.

So, what to make? "I'm not sure yet," says Roberta. "I think it would be stunning as a classic, calf-length, shawl collar dressing gown. Or possibly a nightgown."

It seemed a shame to keep this lovely fabric indoors, so she is also considering a long, full skirt, or a shirtwaist dress with a vintage vibe.

She also adds, "I will accept suggestions from the public!"
