So I had a crazy idea while cleaning out my closet the other day. I found the prom dress that my grandmother made for me my junior year. It's a huge purple confection that I have never worn again (nor ever will, as I've lost about 40 lbs since high school) I've seen what several of you talented people have done with sari silk and recycled sweaters, and I think I'd like to try to use the dress fibers to spin into yarn for a gift for her, if it's even possible. I think the dress is silk blended with something or other, its been so long that I have no idea what it's made of.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
Am I nuts?
