Swanky tank and black denim Laura pants in London

I love my white Grainline studio tank, made with a scrap of linen and eyelet.

So I’ve made one in navy 22 mm silk. French seams and a perfect rolled hem (if I do say so myself). So happy with this rolled hem, check it out. In a earlier post here I have a few tips for using your machines rolled hem foot.   It’s such a luxurious silk, from Tessuti. I didn’t have quite enough material so had to piece two small sections at the front shoulders. I used French seams and hopefully it’s either not too noticeable or  it looks like a design feature. Whoa these dark glossy fabrics are hard to photograph, I haven’t done them justice here. Does anyone have any tips?
