Silk is horrible to work with, I know what you mean by the edges being all frizzy, it kept fraying, I had to be heaps careful not to knock the edges before I got a hemline in!Aw so cute! I SO agree! I'm new a sewing too and sewed my first silk (by hand) for Shayley's birthday dress....NEVER AGAIN! It is way too messy for me and I'll only try it agian when I actually but a machine! It's so hard! YOU did a great job though compared to mine because the edges are all frizzy on my dress! They are so cute and your little ones are such models!!!
