Q&A with So Sew Easy

Beachbug25 asked:
Very attractive and fits you so well. Were both fabrics knits? Do you think it would work with silk or a lightweight woven fabric?
So Sew Easy answered:
Yes, both were very light weight and both knits with a good stretch. It wouldn't work in silk or a woven because you wouldn't be able to get it on and off without the stretch.
