Muted dark tones in an abstract border print in shades of brown, gold, green and ivory in a floaty silk chiffon, deadstock from a southern California designer. Light weight, sheer, with a soft, airy, fluid drape. To line or not, depending on the style, right for a dress, shirt, tunic, skirt, scarf or shawl.
Cut fabrics like this one using paper. Lay down a layer of paper on the cutting table, and trim the ends so they are straight, at right angles to the other edge. This assures that you can line up the grain of the fabric with the edges of the paper. Place the fabric on top, smoothing so the grain is straight... this is key! Then pin the pattern through all layers and cut through all layers. The bottom paper layer keeps the soft fabric from shifting as you cut and allows you to move and mark the pieces without distorting.
Hand launder cool, air dry.
