Blue Diva #4


To my delightful surprise, my experiments are so far working out beautifully!!! The silk dress panel looks very different on the pipe than the scarf panels do. Since the bonded nylon is much thinner than the string I use on the scarves, the pleating is looking much more uniform, even through several layers of silk.
