After stitching the pieces together, press. Then finish off your seam allowances as your normally would. Here you can see the silk has a stiffness which is needed for my cuff. It now has it's own body and form.
This technique can be used with any two fabrics. It just depends what your project is, and what your desired end is. It is certainly nice not to have to shell out all those bucks for something you can do for less! I find it also works better for me.
Hope this was compressible. Please make sure to contact me if you have questions!
