Whispering Lines Poly Chiffon Wovenruben
Abstract muted waving lines in cool tones of gray, blue and taupe punched with black in a digital print on a light and airy poly chiffon. Deadstock from a southern California designer. Semi sheer with a cool smooth hand, fluid liquid drape. Right for blouse, tunic, dress, skirt, to layer over another garment or line. Test scraps for needle size and stitch length. Start with a small (#10/11) sharp needle, fine thread and short stitch length.
Cut fabrics 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.
Pre-treat by wash gentle and air dry.
