Oh. My. Goodness!!!! I was able to get a stunning selection of REALLY fine silk duppioni from a manufacturer of bridal gowns in New York. And this is STUNNING! Perfect for bridal wear, of course, it's also a wonderful choice for tops and dresses. For the latter, pair it with Vogue 1542 by Patricia Keay. If separates are more your style, you can make a fabulous pair of cigarette pants using Simplicity 8514.

A note about Silk Dupioni - I know silk scares a lot of people. But dupioni is probably one of the easiest fabrics to work with. It doesn't slide as much as other types of silk, and you can even wash it! It will lose its luster and soften up considerably if you machine wash and dry it. You must pre-shrink it if you want to throw it in the dryer, but this is a very forgiving fabric, so have fun with it!
