Turns out the rumors are true, silk is really slippery! I was having trouble cutting out a dress pattern, so I opted to make a simple half circle skirt with this silk fabric instead. It was a breeze to sew up, but I fear it’s rather boring. Any suggestions? I’m thinking a shorter hem might be more appropriate…
