Of course, in each case, the proportions of each colour or print will not be the same in the actual piece as it is in these auditioning lineups. It never is, in my experience, but this is how I make a selection of fabrics for any one piece. As I go along, there will be snippets or other pieces in my stash which will suggest themselves ( ” please, oh please miss, pick me?”) and other choices, once I am actually working with them will be disappointing in some way and will have to drop out of the final production. It’s not at all unlike producing a stage show.
