I altered the pattern a bit because i wanted a very light summer blouse. I added the collar and removed the back and front darts. Because the fabric was much too transparent i also made a beige top to wear underneath. Sewing silk involves lots of patience. I even told myself that i would never ever sew silk again. But i am very happy with the result and i already started sewing a new dress using black silk this time…:d
