So I have finally watched last weeks project runway episode (the “what women want” one) and I really liked how Victors blouse was sheer but had an extra layer for the lower part. My question is: Did he make a separate boob tube type singlet that is separate or is this extra layer built into the blouse because if it is I want to know how it is done.

I have made a few sheer items and I just wear a singlet underneath but if there is a better way I want in on the secret! ;)

Here is a pic, don’t click if you haven’t seen the episode. Victor’s Blouse

    OOOOooo… I loved that blouse too! To me it looked like it was layered into the design of the shear much the same way you would do a shear dress with a lining or built in slip. I’m sure that Katexxxxxx probably knows exactly how it is done, so I look forward to hearing her tips.

    I’d just cut a lining for the lower half, in a light weight silk habotai. Hemm the top edge ans sew it into the armscye on the lower half. You might want to sew the lining into the seams down the side as well.

      Awesome! Thanks Kate, it’s not as complicated as I first thought so I’ll definitely be giving it a go.
