    The clear thin thread is most likely nylon. That's what I thought was used initially. But on the arms where the laces are attached (not where the armhole/sleeve is). I can see very tiny stitches. I think they look white. So it is likely some modern polyester/cotton thread or possibly silk. I wonder if Marina would mind sharing what she uses.

    Speaking about nylon thread, isn't it very difficult to make smallish knots to tie the ends when using it?

    Mini-magic has a lot of very thin thread that I use for hand sewing, also very thin fabric. A lot is aimed at dollhouse sized dolls, so good for us too.

    A tiny blob of superglue on the knot can fix the nylon thread.

    I bought the mink thread sampler, a couple of years ago- I havent used it up yet. I also buy a lot of their batistes- I love them-very sheer and soft.

    I hope everyone has had a chance to see the finished dress on Marina's Blog. It is fabulous. Really lovely.
