Hello!  Lately, I've been a little obsessed with the quest of sewing the perfect little satin robe.  I love lounge-wear, and like to keep something over my arms.  This is version six (I added piping and a pocket from the previous version) and I think I am getting close to exactly what I wanted.  I'm really developing a love/hate relationship with silky fabrics!

It looks awesome! silky fabrics are such divas.....

But i think you did a great job! i love that it is reversible. is the Pink side the same material type as the Paisley side?

The pink is more of a babysilk, a little thicker and much less slippery than the print.  It is much easier to work with!

Silky fabrics have such personality... I find that the  sewing direction makes a huuuuuge difference in the finished seam. Hanging cut pieces for a day before sewing can help with hemming too.
