Wanting the lace to have more contrast with the fabric is a lovely idea. With your warm complexion I would go with hue 24 or hue 45. I checked out their site and I prefer the texture/sheen of their standard satins – colors 70, 71, and 58. In My Humble Opinion super-shiny poly satins are hard to photograph well.

Can you order swatches? It’s really the only way. I’m not using THE SHOP but I do sew myself, and I’ve bought fabric online. I’ve learned the hard way that the only way to really know is to get fabric swatches, if at all possible.

For my dress I bought fabric online, which a local dressmaker will make up for me. But I saw samples first before I placed my final order. After looking at the samples and comparing them to my skin tone I picked something really different from what I was expecting – more yellow-ivory rather than light white-ivory.
