Alright, all you fabulous 18th century experts - I need an opinion on the correctness of a particular fabric I'm interested in. I'm adding a link to an ebay auction that is basically the fabric I'm considering, only with different colors.

http://cgi.ebay.com/100-SILK-TAFFETA-KRAVET-SPRING-GINGER-STRIE-0-5-5-3Y_W0QQitemZ200103321004QQihZ010QQcategoryZ28158QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Is this stripe accurate looking? I can't seem to find any extant images that convince me it's ok...nothing I'm looking at has enough detail to convince me that the subtle blend between the different colored stripes was used...though this one might be the ticket. GAH! I wish I could find some better detail shots!

Help! What do you think?
