Asymmetric golden rose silk blouse

Added May 21, 2012

London, United K...






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!

Material Notes

Golden 100% silk charmeuse with a repeated floral motif, bought from DittoFabrics in Brighton (though it’s also available to buy online)

    Great color! The design is simple but so chic and this is what I love. Good idea to pair a feminine blouse with a rocker leather skirt. Love the whole outfit

      Oh I’m so glad I could help! I totally recommend something simple for your first silk blouse pattern. The free Colette Patterns “Sorbetto” top is a really good one, just so you can practice your finishing techniques without too many seams!

      yeah well I pre-started with Rachel Comey V1247 blouse thinking that was pretty easy…I wish i had you “too many seams” advice before that one…as it’s been I fight …and I need some distance from it before i post it if you know what I mean…and for the next one I’ve picked a pattern with 2 pieces! :)

      Thanks again for the tute!
