It’s like sewing with fairy floss (cotton candy, I think in the US). It slips through the fingers like fairy gold. This silk chiffon is so lovely.
I’ve had this in my stash for a while, it’s from Tessuti. I love it, but didn’t know what to do with it. It reminds me of the hydrangeas in my grandmas garden. Did Madonna really say she loathed hydrangeas? How could anyone hate hydrangeas? So weird.
For me they are all, about summer, grandmas garden and icy poles eaten on her front verandah.
I used French seams. All good, an easy and a nice finish. Ahh but the hems, I’m not going to lie, a nightmare. Three attempts before getting them only just passable.
First the rolled hem foot, no good, cut those hems off. Then the stitch, press, stitch, press and stitch again. No good, cut that off. Another attempt with the rolled hem foot. Aah chiffon gorgeous but tricky.
Pattern: Tessuti’s Tokyo jacket lengthened and without the bands or pockets.
Fabric: silk chiffon from Tessuti
