Instagram Competition – Week 6: Draper & Mills

Fabric by the yard on long wooden tables, rolled out, measured and cut with tailors’ scissors; the weavers & makers of textiles & cloth; the local stores that awaited their delivery of french silks, velvets, grosgrains and all things millinery.

It can be linen & homespun, milliners’ notions, patterns & blueprints, ribbons, safety pins and anything inbetween.

Create a new picture in theme and #draper&mills & #bowerbird & tag @sibellacourt and I will choose a favourite to win a copy of Bowerbird.

Good luck!
