A sleeveless top with a cowl neck. The top is cut on the bias, and I had problems caused by the side seam stretching. Later I learned that I could have used spray starch to stabilize the fabric. The front plunges too deeply for my liking, but wearing it with a plain black T-shirt underneath – an idea gleaned from a review on the net – has made it wearable. Indeed the long sleeves and warm fabric of the T-shirt has turned this silk top into a three-season garment.
The fabric is a silk charmeuse purchased cheaply as a 1.5-metre remnant.
