Hi

I have been looking at some Robert Kaufmann Radiance fabric (cotton/silk blend) to make some blouses. Can anyone provide tips for sewing with it? It is slippery so I think it would be like sewing charmeuse but other suggestions? As well, does it wrinkle badly (doesn't feel like it would..).
Thanks for any advice.

I made my granddaughter's Easter dress from it. I pre-washed and dried it, underlined with silk organza and lined it with ambiance. I really liked the way it turned out. I don't think it was especially wrinkly or hard to sew.
