silk jersey: I recommend it.

Too bad it's so expensive, because silk jersey is the best.  This fabric was a dream to work with and even better to wear.   Oh yes, I could get used to silk jersey.

Top: My Image Magazine winter 2011/2012 cowl top, recently sewn in silk jersey
Pants: StyleArc Patterns The Linda Pant, sewn in cotton /lycra

Then we have the whole issue of the magic pants pattern.  The Peta Pant is great, and so is the Linda pant.

What else can I say?  GREAT patterns!  I think this whole sewing thing is working out for me.

  13. Oh the pants look a fabulous cut and the top looks so lovely. I'd love to try some silk knits but not until I get a bit more confident.

  14. I love the way they look but how do you figure out what size to buy? I went to the website and noticed that patterns are sold by size. I did not find a chart that would help me decide what size to order. I have (44 hips and 36 waist) -- just got a little sick with horror.
