For the last 6 months I've been focusing on making wearables other than scarves, coats and vests. Working with silk is challenging - particularly the gossamer silk paj I've been using for my blouses and skirts. It's slippery and damages easily so there's a small margin of error with mistakes. Once you've sewn it once, you pretty much can't rip stitches to correct or it will show in the fabric. Ironing over the old stitch marks does help, but it's best to be accurate the first time.
