|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? Silk georgette print & silk doupioni. The buttons are recycled from a dress that I made in the late '80's.
What are you most proud of? Squeezing blood out of a turnip; as usual, I could have used a bit more of each fabric.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're working with a wiggly fabric like silk georgette, cut the neck binding double, as a French binding instead of a single layer; that will make it easier to work with. I wish I had enough of one of the fabrics to have done this, preferably in the black doupioni.
