Description

I made this pattern again from Simplicity 1661, this time in a cream silk crepe de chine material purchased at Mill End Store in Portland, Oregon. I love the bow tie end as it can be worn tied in a loose knot or in a loose bow. I also like the soft pleats at the shoulders and the interesting center back seam with a placket sort of extension, which I opted to sew completely closed as opposed to leaving a long slit opening following the pattern designed.
