I finally finished the raw silk sling from Growing Up Sew Liberated, by Meg McElwee. When I attended a really fancy wedding earlier this summer, I felt a bit drab in my simple dark blue jersey nursing dress and Moby Wrap. I decided I really wanted a more dressy sling for special occasions. With a dear friend's upcoming wedding right around the corner, I got to work.
sling rings online as well. Then Muiche sent me beautiful thread that happened to match the fabric perfectly. I tweaked the pattern slightly by making the sling an inch or so narrower, so I could simply split the silk in half. If I get the hang of using it, I may dye the remaining silk and make a second sling. I'm thinking a rich brown.
