I now order Folkwear patterns online, but have found them on clearance at a couple of small-town fabric stores before. They do not seem to be very popular but if I see any on sale that I do not have, I snatch them up! I have made the cheesemaker's smock in charcoal wool, japanese field pants, and the Moroccan burnoose. I have made the Moroccan burnoose 2 times in wool, and once in velvet burnout as a wrap for formalwear. velvet burnoose You can see the wool ones at my blog. Thank you for the compliment! I love to sew with silk, but I usually do a muslin first.

Do you have a local suppplier for Folkwear patterns? I recently ordered the Glamour Girl Dress pattern, a throwback to the 40's. Have you sewn other garments using Folkwear? You look lovely in your featured dress. Would you consider a class of silk for your next project? Thanks for sharing.
