How to Build Your Own Drape Set

Back in the 80s, when the Color Me Beautiful Seasons were the craze, I had purchased a silver lame and gold lame drape set.  This was to help determine if you were cool or warm.  You can purchase these from a fabric store, cutting them to about 13 x 19 inches each.

You also might guy a piece of black fabric and one in white.  This will help you rule these colors in or out for you.  You want to see if the color drains in your face when you are draped with each color.

You could go as far as creating your own beginner drape set:
Cool: Silver Lame, Black, White, Rose (Winter), Gray and Pink (Summer)
Warm: Gold Lame, Warm Dark Brown, Orange (Autumn), Peach, Light Warm Yellow (Spring)
