Hot Pink Safari

Brooklyn, New Yo...






here you go, my dear:

this is lovely.

is this for you?

i should hope so.

very beautiful 4ply luxurious hot pink silk. really, such gorgeous fabric, one of the best i’ve worked with. a delite to touch and see.

with my overlocked-turned-to-the-outside-and-topstitched-down seams. i like doing seams this way because it is interesting and cool and makes for a nice experience for the wearer—all the threads are on the outside, so the only thing against your skin is pure silk. yummmmmm.

double breasted, three hand-sewn snaps in front. pretty little bias at armholes and collar. princess seams front and back.

Material Notes

beautiful silk, ledthread, love

    I like the added texture you give your tops with the stitching on the outside. Love the color and I can almost feel the softness of the silk.
