I found this amazing white lace fabric. It is sheer and has these neat little flowers in the designs. It is a very delicate fabric, so sewing it was a challenge. Actually even cutting it out was challenging. :) After trying several different needles, I finally selected an 11 and that seemed to work pretty well. I sewed all the seams and then I serged them. I then resewed the seams just to be safe. I had wanted some white satin ribbon for the ties, but I finally settled on white velvet. It is a stunning cloak.
