Silk charmeuse

I have not used yet. It is the color and quality I need to match fabric I have. It will be a blouse.

very satisfied

The sample is wonderful. Gorgeous material at a great price. Plus the sample was sent out promptly. I'm still in the planning stage but will most likely choose this material. I'm just having trouble being able to tell if the larger piece of material is what I'm looking for. Because the material has to be light enough to ripple and flutter. It's for a dance costume.

Silk for a pillow case

I have a special shaped pillow that is very long and shaped like a shepherd’s hook and I love silk pillowcases. This fabric will work perfectly. The weight is not too light and the price point makes it affordable to make a couple cases. It pre-washed well and I’m going to love it!
