Thanks so much for the link!! I was also thinking she uses a petal shape for the bottom layers and then individual petals for the top part... I played around with the different satins and the "bridal inspirations" satin definitely curled the best! The costume satins curl just as well, but this satin was a bit heavier and defiinitely looked nicer. BUT, you can't beat the price of the costume satin vs. the bridal at 9.99/yd! I only tested the "melting" of the diff. fabrics, didn't try to put one together yet...will have to load up on caffeine tonight and try! Thanks again for all of the advice/links/ideas!!!
