This is a pattern from the Brazilian pattern magazine, Manequim, and it’s made from one piece of silk, with only one side seam and two shoulder seams. I just love the asymmetric drape on the left side, and the way the beautiful gold silk catches the light. I’m not really a floral person, though, so I paired it with my grey leather pencil skirt to try and tone down the twee!
