This is a low-key, no pressure challenge in which I (along with some other lovely blogging ladies) will be choosing a fabric that scares us, and sewing a garment from it.

Sally from the quirky peach will be sewing up silk.
Mrs. Smith from The joys and trials of my sewing and crafting! will try her hand at chiffon and charmeuse.
And I will be tackling my fear of brocade.
Want to join us? We'd love to have you! Join the Flickr group or leave me a comment letting me know you'll be sewing along at home. And if you're afraid of making a garment that you won't wear, think about how to incorporate a Fear Fabric into a Halloween costume. No pressure as you'll only wear it once!
What's your Fear Fabric?
