Glow worms

I like silk.  How it drapes, how it feels.  It's difficult to work with it but it's mostly worth it!

Unfortunately silk is not always so planet-friendly, but what if the worm itself produced colored silk???  Still in the early stages but it's a brilliant concept.


Here are better shots of last week's look:

Above, back right of garment.  I sewed the pink silk on the "wrong" side of the fabric.  The correct side was a little too bright and pink for me, but I love the details of the jacquard-like petals, which I still showed along the hem and seam binding.  The orange silk is gauze-like and sheer.
