Rayon is pretty sweet. It feels so soft and it drapes so beautifully. You do have to be a little careful with it when you wash it since it can shrink easily. But I think it’s so worth the trouble.
Two of my recent projects were made with rayon fabric with a touch of spandex.
First, I made a top for me.
Then I changed the sleeves a bit. First, I made the sleeve wider. Then I finished the raw edge of the sleeve by doing a rolled hem on my serger. And then I gathered the sleeve in at the bottom by sewing two lines of shirring around the sleeve.
Oh, and did you see the earrings I’m wearing in that first picture?
I got them from my friend Natalie’s Etsy shop. I think all her jewelry is so cute and it’s priced great too.
I also made another maxi skirt, this time without the ruffle at the bottom.
And that’s it for rayon. For now, at least!
