so i'm going to make a "fairy" shirt out of silk and i was wondering how much it would fray if i made it choppy at the bottom without hemming since it will be all different lengths.i don't want it to fall apart lol. keep in mind i have only sewn clothes once if this is a dumb question
Silk will fray like crazy if not hemmed or finished with a serger.
The best way to finish it is either with a rolled hem
or burn the edges
if you burn the edges def test it out a few times first on scrap fabric
thank you. i think burning will work perfect for it. it it works lol never would have thought of that
Doing a rolled hem will give you a longer lasting result though it would take a lot of extra patience to get it just right.
