Silk fabric


More gorgeous fabric to play with! Shopping trip yesterday resulted in some lovely silk fabric. Above photo shows the sari silk which I believe will become a summer skirt. The dupioni silk may be sewn into a sleek purse.

The above photo shows the shimmery brocade, the lame, and 100% silk. Not sure what to do with them yet....will be fun just looking and touching them! Possibly the 100% silk piece would work as the lining in the dupioni purse.

Some great places to order silks are:
Fabric.com
Silk Trading
Silk Baron

What are your favorite silk colors? What do you usually sew with the fabric?

Happy Sewing!
