I had made a different top with the other portions of the silk that was a total wader even though I had made a muslin and worked out the fit details. Again, it was due to this fabric being super delicate. I managed to have enough left over to put together this top with a contrast back. I am so much happier with this!
Here is the pattern I used:
I like the clean lines of the top and the fact it is sleeveless.
This fabric is also somewhat iridescent. See what I mean when you look at the photos?
I really like the pink back! This isn't the most precise sewing I've ever done but I knew from previous experience working with this fabric that what ever happened, was going to stay that way, much like when you sew with leather.
I did my best to sew very carefully but this was the 'shiftiest' fabric I have ever sewn with!!!
I did have to cut the front yoke on the bias. I think it is fine given the jumbled way the elephants are strewn on this fabric.
I enjoyed sewing this!
Thanks for reading!
