A Silk Tie Skirt Part 1

When my blog was much newer than it is now I started a project. I called it my Secret Project or something like that.

The Ties

I was making a silk skirt from ties. I took apart the ties. Moved their tags. Washed them. And got most of the major seams sewn.

Then… I quit…

I didn’t want to put the zipper in. So I put it aside and moved on.

Recently with M’s Best Friend’s wedding coming up. I thought it would be fun if I could finish the skirt and maybe make a similar top from the scraps and ties I didn’t use.

So I put in the zipper and decided to use the thick golden tie for the waist.

It has been going remarkably well. This is the first time I have sewn with silk and the first time I have done much sewing with bias cut fabric. It is easier than I feared. The bias cut gets rid of the fraying silk is famous for. And silk isn’t as scary to sew as people made it seem.
