Out of the chaos...

It looks like a thermonuclear device went off in my studio but there is a method to my madness! I had this NEED to restock my ATC and faux postage collection and once I started getting things out to use it went from the desk to the floor to the whole room. I'm using a lot of supplies that have been hanging around the studio for ages- tiny tags, paint chips and fabric scraps- and incorporating them into this massive project. So far, the floor has been like this for 2 weeks but the faux postage is almost done and the ATCs are well on their way. I'll post the results from all this craziness in subsequent posts.

  1. silk charmeuse is most commonly used in evening wear, especially as an overlay, for giving an elegant and floating appearance to the gown. It is also a popular fabric used in blouses, ribbons, scarves and lingerie. Like other silk fabrics, silk chiffon can be difficult to work with because of its light and slippery texture. Due to this delicate nature, silk chiffon must be hand washed very gently. Since silk chiffon is a light-weight fabric that frays very easily, bound or French seams must be used to stop the fabric from fraying. Silk chiffon is smoother and more lustrous than the similar fabric silk georgette.
