I've finished the bodice of my lime green dress! But I'm having a little more trouble than I though I would.
You see, I ordered this lime organdy from Fabric.com (for $1.95 a yard!) and when I got it I saw that it was really sheer and stiff. That is what I get for ordering a fabric I've never used online. :-) So I decided to line it in 5mm Silk Habotai. Boy, oh boy. I had no idea what I was getting into. :-) I've never used 100% silk (Dharma Trading Co. btw.) before. 5mm silk is super thin. The silk is so sheer it hardly helps! (picture on right) So even after every piece is interlined in silk I'm still going to have to wear some sort of dress slip. I don't like slips. :-( Oh well, I still am excited about the dress.
I am making view A without the ribbon.
BTW. Silk is a pain.
