Silk chiffon, black with off white spots. I have made this pattern before with a Liberty Tana Lawn, and really wanted to do it again with something with more drape. I dug this silk out of my fabric box, and it was perfect! Same adjustments as before. Pattern is no. 138 from Burda 08/2011. Seams are all french, I double turned the hem and used a very light polyester fusible interfacing. This top has recieved many more compliments from my girls than the previous one! The drape of the silk really suits the style of the top.
