My first time working with silk. I love the result!
The pattern is Decades of Style’s Collar Confection Blouse. There was a lot of hand stitching for the collar and sleeve facings. I tried to do a hand-rolled hem, but my inexperience fingers couldn’t manipulate the delicate slippery fabric, so I pressed the hem in then hand stitched it.
