Tonight I cut the shell and skirt from the cream silk that I got from Gorgeous Fabrics. Oh man, this stuff is like buttah!! I had laundered it so I wouldn't have to worry about water spots. It shrank slightly, and it feels even more luxurious than before. I could really get spoiled working with nice stuff like this.
BTW, I'll be posting brief updates as this project progresses. They may or may not have pictures but doing this will help my progress as well as keeping you all informed.
