Sheer Fabulous

Sheer drapery is so hot....and I'm not talking about those old fashioned, horrible, looks like "curtains in bag" sheer. I am talking about fabulous sheer with burn out patterns, or shimmery metallic threads woven in or even yes...cashmere sheer. It does exist. Kravet's new luxury fabric line, LIZZO, features a cashmere sheer that is drop dead gorgeous.

The sheer, featured below, is one that we are using for a client's project. It reminds me of fall leaves. The best word to describe this fabric is ethereal.
