Ok, next question: Anyone work with burnout silk chiffon? Have made a maternity skirt and empire-waisted top for a soon-to-be matron of honor (next weekend-Apr. 5). Looks super but would like thoughts on hemming the top. The underlayer is satin and I will do a narrow hem there. But this lovely chiffon doesn’t look so pretty with a machine rolled hem due to irregularity of the burnout design–it looks uneven. So, I’m taking a deep breath and gearing up for a hand rolled one. Any thought, suggestions, etc.? I also tried a serger sample and it calls too much attention to the hemline. The skirt is knee length and the empire waisted top hem will finish about 6″ above that, if propotions are of any help.
P.S. Thanks for the help on previous issues-love this site! Thanks Threads!
