I'm relatively new to craftster, so please let me know if I'm making a posting faux-pas. I have a bunch of wonderful silk scarves that are totally rad and fairly big (one scarf = half the circumference of entire torso). I want to make a shirt out of them, but I am deathly afraid of ruining them. Has anyone done something similar? Does sewing silk require any special attention? Any ideas on how to construct a silk-friendly pattern?
I was thinking a t-shirt with puffy-ish sleeves. Any suggestions are extremely welcome!
