A top made from silk I’ve had for way too long, probably bought from Rosenberg & sons at a Sewing for Pleasure sometime in the last 7 years or so! The pattern is self-drafted from Pattern Magic 2. I wanted a cowl so went with the different facings, different looks. You draft the bodice front and then choose from 4 different facings to pull the cowl into different shapes. This top is made using the asymmetrical facing, and I love it! All seams are french, hems are double turned. There is a bit more info, and some pattern cutting stuff, on my blog
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
