Silk Ripples and Silk Kurlz

Silk Ripples

Approximate size before processing is 9″ x 36″. Hand dyed, hand pleated Habotai silk. When torn it yields a perfect lettuce edge. Use it for ruffles, in a single layer or as flounces with a doubled layer. Iron a folded edge to get a beautiful flower effect. It is lightweight and drapes beautifully.

Silk Kurlz

Approximate size before processing is 4″ x 9″. Hand dyed and scrunched Habotai silk makes a lovely, easy embellishment flower (free download instructions under freebies on our website) and it is also a great fabric for costuming. The silk is so tightly scrunched that when it is opened up it wants to “rescrunch” making it a great option for a fitted sleeve or bodice. There is no need for darts to fit the doll. Simply wrap the Kurlz around the doll’s bodice, tack or glue it down and you have a figure forming bodice with great texture and color.
