I love silk. I love knitting with it, especially mixed with other fibres. I love wearing it and having somewhere to wear it. I love the idea of sewing with it. The reality is a little different. I find it a bit tricky to sew, especially anything sheer. I managed to get over my fear of it yesterday and start on the flower girl dresses for the girls and I pleasantly surprised myself. I even managed french seams. I have nearly a dress done. I think I might hand sew the zip in as I know that otherwise it's going to all end in tears. I just need to find my Rajah cloth (I swear there is 3 of them in this room) and iron it, I am so scared of burning it. I'm using Burda pattern 9757.
Chris' parents have been here for the weekend which the girls love and so do we, the house is a lot cleaner then normal and it gave me time to sew the dress without the constant interruptions.
If you haven't already seen it - have a look at LMNOP - a new online kid's magazine. My curly - haired dolls are in there.
