Beaded Beauty

Added Aug 31, 2013

Portland, Oregon...






I made this lovely little tank top from Burda Style pattern 101 from silk charmeuse with a beautiful beaded trim purchased from Button Emporium in Portland, Oregon. It was a fast and relatively easy top to make. The only changes I made were to eliminate the front slit opening and I made the side seams french seams. I love this top and can’t wait to wear it for a night out on the town.
I used my SA Curve Rulers to add the seam allowances to this downloaded pattern and they worked out really great!

Material Notes

silk charmeuse,
beaded trim
