A recent discovery at a local(ish) oppy was this size 16 handmade silk skirt for a dollar.
Just one dollar!
I’ve never sewed silk before. Eager to get started and without really planning the project I started cutting away ready to make Ms. M some pants. I’ve learnt my lesson – I should have examined the garment more closely – because if I had I would have realised that it was fully lined with the same material… so it turned out that I cut out the pieces for the pants twice.
There are only so many silk pants in the same colour that an almost eighteen month old child needs so I gave the second pair to our neighbour’s daughter.
Sewing the silk was really lovely. For some reason I have it in my head that the fabric is thai silk. What do you think? Do you recognise it?
