I knew the sun has the capacity to fade fabrics over time. What I didn’t know was how fast it can happen. My new, as yet unworn, 100% silk dress has faded. I had it in my living room window for a couple of weeks-cloudy weeks at that!-and it has faded. Grrrrrr.
Can you see the difference? Lie to me and tell me you can’t. All I can say is I’m glad I didn’t spend $52 a meter. I’m also wondering if I should ever buy silk again (even at the great prices I found in the States). It is just too fragile. I doubt the dresses I made out to curtain fabrics would have done this! Sigh, live and learn the hard way!
