Further progress on Mimi’s Tallit

I’m now about 1/3 done piecing the day side of Mimi’s tallit. Yes, the silk in the photo needs pressing.

The night colored silk will be underlined with the teddy bear flannel. With the flannel under the dark silk the two halves of the tallit will weigh the same.  I still have to wash the sugar and the salt off of the silk.  Experience has taught me how to anticipate problems.
