    I’m afraid there are lots of sites (and stores too!) which seem to think that “silk” and “linen” are nothing more than descriptions of weave. You have to ascertain the actual fiber content. I find Russian art supply sites suspect anyhow.

    Good luck finding something nice!

    Don’t know if these are in your price range or any of them are green enough, but they’re worth a peek.

    About the Jane Austen movie — admittedly I haven’t studied the early half of the century, but what did you think about the costumes at the end of the movie? It was ruined to me because I couldn’t help thinking ‘if Regency had a grandma, this would be it.” I couldn’t even begin to peg the decade!
