"you know tillie love, My basic /native french idioms, still brings me all those little problems. I got used to know the fabrics names through my mom who was dressmaker (never taught me how to sew anyhow)and when in Canada (west coat) I went to the fabric store and bought only what I liked without even looking at the name of it. Now in Spain fabric is very scarce around here so I am looking at the web option , and I need the true name  so now I have to learn ...again. do we ever stop learning???…"

"I don't know enough about sewing or fabric or any corresponding terminology to comment as Dom does.  I can only express my visual pleasure, hahahahhaha  and of course, my imagination is always working overtime."

"LOL, Dom!  It is the middle of the night here and I can't sleep. So, in between reading a few pages, I look at the computer and read the email. Silk noil is woven with short fibers of silk, which makes lots of nubs in the fabric. The short fibers also give the fabric a dull finish and a cotton-like feel. Its silk that doesn't feel like silk. It is NOT recycled, which is what Google tells me the "lirette de soie" is.
What are you working on?"

"oh you are so prompt to answer Jackie, I think we are all alone on the site today hee hee
 the way you made the tunic over this skirt is just perfect!
I was wondering if  "silk noil"correspond to "lirette de soie" in french I have her a big piece of lirette de soie (maybe silk lirette ? ) yellow and it is gorgeous, but always look a bit heavy for my girls,. but the way you used it with the pleats made me thinks I will certainly try this
 thanks for the side pic, you are such an inspiration, I a…"

"Thanks, Tilly.  I like your character analysis and story line. I have always loved the early part of the 20th century because of the details they used that you just don't see anymore. Sometimes a detail can be copied, but mostly, it has to be adapted to suit the reality of quarter scale and whatever materials are at hand.
Thanks!"

"The pleats are only tucks, the double needle raises the surface of the fabric in a kind of ridge, so no pleats on something this tiny, double needle tucks instead.
The top is sewn to the skirt, the seam is pressed upward and the seam allowances are hand stitched to the side and center back seams. The sleeves repeat the front motif.
No lining at all for this one, as it would have added too much bulk with these firmly woven fabrics. The silk noil is finished with Fray Check at the hems, so it's n…"
