My silk dress, the first experience in tailoring

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

About almost 2 years ago, my professors gave me  a gift of 2 meters maroon fabric for my wedding gift. I do not intend to make clothes so i just ignore that fabric.
I’ve been sewing clothes before, but only the stitch. Pattern-making process carried out by my mother.
This time I want to do all the stages of manufacture itself, choose a model, making patterns, cutting, sewing and finishing processes. I also bought about 1.5 meters maroon plain satin fabric for clothes applications.
I made the pattern by measuring most comfortable abaya  I’ve used. After the pattern is completed,  then I pressed the pattern on the fabric, and cut fabric.
After that, I went to the tailor near my residence and asked him to seam the fabric. The tailor then asked where I bought this fabric and I replied that this was a gift. I do not know where to buy it. He said that this was a genuine silk. whattt??? I learned to sew by using a silk?? I was so worried that my pattern was wrong, and wasted an expensive piece of silk cloth.
hihihihii .. Long story short, I managed to sew and its turned out to be quite comfortable shirt …
In the process of sewing silk and satin apparently encountered obstacles. Fabric tends to wrinkle. After googling on some websites, it turned out I had to tighten the thread tension, and gripped the fabric when sewing. Here it is the results of my dress …
