Story of my life: I saw a dress and I transformed it into a top. But for real, my latest blog post is all about how I made this silk off-shoulder top from a shift dress and what you MUST know about the silk industry. Plus there’s a quickie tutorial at the end (link in profile) *
A little preview- all I can say is that silk is a precious resource turned into a fast fashion commodity. First off, did you know silk worms are boiled alive to extract their threads? *
I don’t want to bum anyone out, I just want us treat our silk more nicely and invest in the silk we have instead of buying more Sometimes that means buying used silk and endless repurposing.
