I have been on a clothes sewing tear. I finished the tunic made with Anna Maria Horner voile, and I'm very happy with it - so much so, that I'm wearing it to work tomorrow. Although the fabric has a very slight sheen, it is not as shiny as it appears in this picture - it's a side effect of the flash.
Working with this fabric was interesting and I didn't have any problems at all. What I did do before I started though was to put a Schmetz Microtex Sharp needle in my sewing machine and thread my machine with high quality silk finish 100% cotton thread. The sewing went like a dream. I use microtex sharp needles for quilt block piecing too - I prefer the fine needle (although they do tend to dull much more quickly than regular sharps).
I also have finished two summer outfits for Em. I used to make them for my girls when they were little, so it was fun reminiscing as I was sewing. It was a little strange too - thinking that I was sitting there at my sewing machine half a lifetime ago (I was actually a little less than half my current age) making these outfits for my two little ones who were napping while I sewed. Seemed like yesterday *gulp*
