rayon seam binding & a question

'easy' skirt, finally completed!

Gosh, it’ been a while since I contributed, but everyone’s doing such gorgeous things that lurking’s been awesome!  A recent contributor reminded me I hadn’t shared last fall’s tussle adventure with rayon seam binding. Hope it’s useful!

I began with lovely soft-as-butter green rayon, and used a favorite pattern, the

straight skirt. Problems began with the first scissor cut, which I didn’t realize at the time was with a pair of waaay past their sell-by-date scissors.

I’d thought this would be a quick project because it’s an easy pattern I’d done several times, but the project dragged… er, blossomed.

Eventually everything did come together, but am more proud of the inside than the outside.   Lol!

some of the rayon seam binding going on

Now to that question ~ Planning to be in the DC area 1st & 2nd weekends in May and would love to get together with any We Sew Retro folks in the area or visiting.  Am certain there’s something at the Smithsonian we might plan to see & meet there.  Please send message either here or on my blog, with any additional suggestions, and we’ll go from there. Hope we can get something organized.

Thanks for everyone’s great ‘sew & show’ posts!

Cheers!
