Yup, I'm lazy. . .
My husband helped out by wandering by and telling me he preferred the plain version. While I don't usually listen to "Khaki Man's" opinion, as he is a firm believer in less is more and thus my antithesis, it was late and lazy was looking for any excuse to not have to do more work. So, drawers have been cut and sewn and are blue on blue. I just need to decide on some lace for trimming and they're all done.
However, I couldn't let the already decorated fabric go to waste. The silk I had planned to use for the saccocia got put away and I used the painted linen instead since I had just a small amount of it. It's lined with the block printed linen and the tie is the herringbone silk ribbon I plan to use for trim. This is my third saccocia. I liked the size of the orange silk one from my last dress so well that I just traced around it. the linen will certainly be more washable.
