I got this silk georgette for cheap and love the color. This is my first time sewing with silk and it was soooo hard. I had to take so may break. I fought till the end, and the result is lovely ;)

    Wonderful top! Silk is great but a bear to work with.

    This is very lovely! I’ve been thinking about sewing something similar.

      Yes, I think with sewing, I find it effective to take a short break when the frustration starts coming :)

    Georgette, in fact all sheer silks are very challenging. As you said, it’s worth it in the end!
