Buttercup Bias Cowl Tank

Added Apr 16, 2014

Portland, Oregon...






I finally finished this top for my friend after about 9 months since initial request and promises from me. I made it as duplicate to the same top I made for myself in ivory silk crepe from McCalls 6563 pattern that she really liked. I combined the top part of view D with the bottom of view A to make a cowl neck tank top with a dipped back hem. The pattern is cut on the bias, and I made french seams for the side and shoulder seams. It is made of a very sheer buttercup yellow silk chiffon I got at Mill End store in Portland, Oregon. My friend said she loves yellow, and I hope she has a camisole or something to wear under as it is whisper sheer. I hope she likes it!

    good job. that looks like it would have been frustrating material to handle. Fun to wear though!

      Thank you! The material was tricky to handle, especially for the little narrow hems around the armhole and bottom hem. But I got through it!

    What a lovely sunshine lemon top, i’m sure your friend will love this. I love wearing the same colour or else a strong contrast under sheer tops. Such a lot of coloured camisoles would look great under this x
