    This particular brocade was a little tough to work with— it was more lightweight than the Chinese-style brocades that are usually in the local fabric store, so it frayed a lot and snagged more easily and I had a bit of trouble finishing the seams. (Though the latter is probably because I’m still trying to learn how to use my serger!)

    What beautiful fabric! Was it difficult to sew the brocade fabric?
