My own take on VEV 8581. This time I drafted my on neckband and didn’t bother gathering and banding the sleeves. The neckline isn’t perfect – it probably needed to be a bit of a steeper U shape as it’s gaping a bit at the back. But this fabric was an end of roll that I bought on a whim and I have worn this top loads already.
Silk I think but it’s the heavy stuff with a sheen that’s backed in another colour – in this case dark brown.
