I was told white, mostly white. I showed a sketch to my sister-in-law and she approved the simple floral design on the white background. I laid the wool very thinly, entirely covering the white silk chiffon so it would shrink but remain fairly flat. And it looked beautiful.
I felted it. It was still beautiful, but my 90" piece was now 53" long. Too short for a clergy stole.
So I'm trying again. Instead of one long piece, it is two pieces side by side with additional chiffon cut into a curved neckline. Same design. Much more white. I'll felt it tomorrow.
