Description

I bought this shantung silk without actually knowing what I’ll do with it, but I loved the rich chocolate color too much to let it pass. I found the perfect pattern for it in February BWOF (by Tristano Onofri). I ran out of the fabric in the end so that the tie belt is 10 cm too short, but it still looks ok.

    This is beautiful. I too own that beautiful chocolate shantung, and haven’t decided what to do with it. Nice work!

      Shantung is such an easy fabric to sew and the results are always nice. I don’t regret buying it.

      Thanks. The pattern is from Burda, February 2009.

    Gorgeous colour, lovely fit. I don’t think it matters that the tie is shorter by 10cm, it is not noticeable at all.

      Thanks. I think the ends of the tie would fall more nicely if it were a bit longer because shantung is pretty stiff for things like that.

      Thank you. I hope to find more fabric in this color because it’s one of my favourite colors.

      You should try the pattern. I think it’s one of the best Burda patterns I’ve tried over the years. And the gorgeous color does add to the shirt.

    I like this color and, of course, the blouse as I’ve made the same for myself.
