I just love silk and cotton blends! And, of course, just about any floral print is going to have my full attention. Beautiful fabric is such a pleasure to work with - spending extra time and working on those pesky little details does not test my patience at all (well, almost!).
The blouse may not have turned out exactly as I initially envisioned it, but I am very pleased with the finished result.
For some reason, I am not as attracted to separates when looking for patterns, but once they are completed, I suddenly remember how versatile they can be.
And no matter how many times I wear the fabric, I always manage to forget how lightweight silk dupioni is! Dealing with the wind was a challenge for these pictures, so I think I will have to make myself a red skirt that is a bit more weather proof as the seasons change!
