Q&A with cathywf1182899

Minniemeanie asked:
Beautiful! love the color. How long did it take you from lay-out to finish? What fabric did you use?
cathywf1182899 answered:
It probably took me 6 weeks but I work full-time so it was mainly weekends and evenings. Lots of evenings and weekends. I used a very light weight wool for the main fabric,silk organza for interlining and silk crepe de chine for lining. The crepe de chine feels great- like a lovely silk slip.
