February ended nearly two weeks ago. What did you make in silk?
In January, I lined a dress in this large floral silk. In February, I cut out a 12" bias strip the full width of this fabric to make a long bias scarf. This may not look like much, but cutting and hemming a long length of bias-cut light-weight silk is not a trivial project.
I plan to wear it with a linen shirt purchased at a thrift shop. The label says Eileen Fisher, made in the USA of Irish linen. It landed in the shop because of badly frayed buttonholes. A spool of buttonhole twist and the hand-worked buttonhole method that my mother taught me when I was in middle school, and I have a new blouse!
A metallzed linen skirt lined in Bemberg rayon, Vogue 9951, completes this Spring outfit.
In March, we're sewing with a border print. While shopping at SAS with Rose last weekend, a black cotton voile with white eyelet border embroidery came home with me. Perhaps I should make another Burda 2011-02-101.
