My FFC order arrived at the post office on Friday, & I picked it up after work yesterday. I was definitely disappointed that the red rayon (#2912) is in fact a heavy polyester crushed satin. It melted and stank horribly. It's more cost effective to accept the loss than pay to post it back, though I'm definitely asking them to update the description of the fabric on their website.
So, that means I'll be making the vampire of venice nightgown from my stash fabric & pattern after all.
I can't wear heavy polyester. It's going to be 32C on Thursday (89.6F), was 35C/95F on Sunday and 39C/102.2F last Thursday. And it's only the middle of spring.
So wearing a long cotton nightie in 6 weeks time is going to be hot enough for the Dr Who party. No poly for me.
