    • G’day Lyndle! The black silk jersey was from The Remnant Warehouse in Sydney. It is a bit on the thin side but being black, it isn’t too see-thru. Silksational and Beautiful Silks have undyed silk jersey that is a bit heavier and better for dyeing light colours.

      What are you sewing at the moment?
