My friend gave me some of her retired saris. I find it helpful to learn how you handled the silk with self lining and organza interfacing.

Beautiful dress! I love the delicate fabric and details. I know exactly what you mean by sewing being a comfort during hard times. What a blessing the hobby is! Your dress is really lovely, and I enjoyed your story about the beautiful creations made in the dark Quebec winter.

I think the dress is beautiful and I can completely relate to your personal story, having used sewing myself as therapy after the earthquake. And the story is heartbreaking...Bon courage!

Very pretty! Quite delicate and feminine and so beautifully finished. I do hope things are better for you now

LOVE your fabric! I just made a dress with vintage saris too and it offered quite a few challenges as well. Beautiful but not the easiest to work with for sure

Beautiful dress and story to go with it. Some of my ancestors were those rough settlers!

Lovely dress... (I use sewing for therapy too, and I hope that time heals your wounds.)
