I have a piece of cotton print that is only about 1 1/3 yards -- too small to do much with.
I also have a small piece of silk dupioni that would go nicely with the print, leading me to think I could combine them in one garment. I have a patten that would be just perfect for them.

Assuming I prewash the pieces to allow for any uneven shinkage, am I likely to run into any issues with using them in the same garment?

I don't think so. I sew silk to cotton all the time and never have problems.

I agree with Chemical. If you make sure your residual shrinkage is taken care of, I don't know why you would have any issues.
