Squiggles Silk Georgette
PRICED AND SOLD BY THE 1/2 YARD
EXAMPLE: TO ORDER 2.5 YARDS ENTER 5 IN THE QUANTITY BOXBlack silk georgette printed with small spiral-circles in warm toned creamy taupe. The base fabric is sheer with a lightly textured crepe weave in a light airy weight that is right for a skirt, top, dress or to use as a detail. I have a purchased loose little tunic/shirt in a similar fabric that I wear over a black cami-tunic and love the look and soft fluid feel. The weight is right for a top, tunic, dress or skirt. Depending on the style, you might want to line. I cut sheers like this one using paper. Lay down a layer of paper on the cutting table, and trim the ends so they are straight, at right angles to the other edge. This assures that you can line up the grain of the fabric with the edges of the paper. Place the fabric on top, smoothing so the grain is straight...this is key! Then pin the pattern through all layers and cut through all layers. The bottom paper layer keeps the soft fabric from shifting as you cut and allows you to move and mark the pieces without distorting. Would work well in the new Zandra Rhodes top, Vogue 1491, or as the drapey DKNY top in Vogue 1454. Keep the style lines simple, I'd use French seams whenever possible, and test scraps for needle size and stitch length, this would probably call for a small (#10/11) sharp needle, fine thread and short stitch length.
Pre-treat by dipping in lukewarm water and air dry...this is one fabric I would not put in the dryer. After sewing, hand launder and air dry.
