Vintage Silk Fabric

Postby angelalee511 » October 27th, 2014, 10:46 am

I made this pillow for a customer who found this vintage silk fabric some time ago. The pictures just don't do this fabric justice. It is gorgeous in person.

I'm not sure what type of silk this is. It is very slippery and thicker than what I think of when I think silk. I actually thought it was satin when I first saw it.

OMG. Beautiful fabric, it is coming across very rich and sophisticated.

I missed it too! Sorry....but what a happy pillow to come forward on a gloomy day!

Thank you all!! This was one of my favorite fabrics although it was a challenge to work with. Judy turned me on to Wonder Tape in our shirt sew along, and I keep rolls and rolls of that stuff in my sewing room now. It was perfect for keeping this fabric tamed for sewing.
