Soak the silk fabric in warm water with a special detergent made for delicate fabrics. Put a piece in large capacity neat layers, so as not to form creases. After 2-3 hours, carefully vyprosit silk in clean water and shake it over the bath. Dry, smooth out all folds. Then upadte by setting the appropriate mode iron. Proceed carefully not to stretch the canvas! Now you do not fear the unexpected shrinkage of the finished product.
Consider the future form of the silk garment. Stylists advise not to overload it with complex detail and complicated cut lines. Things recommended to do free. If you chose the adjacent silhouette, separately take the lining – it will hide the seam, and the product sits better on the figure. Lining material needs to be dense, but breathable. For example, silk on the basis of 100% cotton.
Cut out the silk on a bed of crisp fabrics (linen or cotton), so that it is less slip on the table. Do the main pattern pieces (front, back, skirts) is required for equity line (that is, in the main threads of the fabric, parallel to the edge). If the model includes a standing collar, the material can be cut on the bias.

To edge silk details went a Mahram, some mistresses use the so-called scissors "zigzag", developed specially for tailoring works.

Thicker leaves in fancy silk vents that when you remove the auxiliary thread then don't hide! A little secret: the slices on a light silk can make stronger, fluff them with diluted gelatin and propadu through a paper sheet white in color.
Sew silk thing on the machine stitches a short (to 2 mm). Well, if the tool is equipped with a conveyor, since it provides a good mounting tabs. If such devices on your sewing machine there, make sure the presser foot pressure is well regulated. In addition, you will need a serger to handle slices on silk (double hem on thin fabric it looks homemade).
Tuck in a sewing machine, cotton thread No. 50 – it you will perform basic joints. To handle the lower edges and loops for clasps you can use silk thread, it is almost not visible on the "face" of the product. When working with silk learn some other rules:
- running the place and treating the edge of the allowances overlock, zautyuzhte stitched strip of fabric in one direction;

- never run the seam across the pins, so as not to scrape the silk;

- when grinding parts cut recommended to put under the wrong side of the thin paper sheet;

duplicating the working tissue can use a thin adhesive interlining;

- damage to natural silk due to sweat can be prevented, if to sew the armhole of the sleeveless podmyshechnykh. The semicircular parts of the cotton can be purchased in the Department of sewing accessories to sew by hand: one part enters into the bottom of the armhole, the other is sewn to the seam allowance manually.
Finally, sew the lining cover and pristrochite to the main fabric, wrong side to wrong side.
