A new top for a mid-winter birthday. Anyone else find silk good for winter?
For a special treat weekend in the Blue Mountains I wanted something warm but stylish. I’ve had this pattern and fabric in the stash for ages.
I took my time with this one. So slippery, so slidey, so tricky to sew and so lovely to wear, silk satin.
The pattern is a Vogue by Tom and Linda Platt and described as a ‘bias front, back and cowl-neck collar , three-quarter raglan sleeves, shaped hemline’.
The seam that attaches the rather dramatic collar is flat-felled, because it is quite obvious depending on how you wear it. The hems are very narrow, done by doing a row of stitching and using that to fold the tiny hem over before stitching into place.
Happy stitching and keep warm ( or cool as the case may be) in silk or other ✂✂
