Yes, another ruffle top. Based off the JJ pattern, but this one is a bit more rough around the edges, and a little more avant-garde. I’m heading in a high-fashion /peasant direction, and here we are.
Beautiful neutral colored designer surplus silk with lovely drape and hand. Seams and edges are serged in darker browns, ruffles are topstitched. Amazing texture in person. Double breasted, snap closures.
I cut this fabric as I was cutting a custom order and I was planning on sewing it the ‘right’ way… but I’m bored of sewing the ‘right’ way!! This was pretty fun. I love the way the texture came out, and the creative process was quite satisfying.
silk, thread, snaps, love
