Description

Made from some old matt (brushed?) silk fabric in my stash, it’s Grainline Studio’s Scout woven tee pattern.
It came together pretty quickly, although I struggled with the silk bias binding on the neckline, and now the neckline sticks out a bit…
The whole thing is french seamed, even the armholes, which I’m very proud of, even if no-one else will see it.

I made no alterations to the pattern other than adding an inch at the bottom. It’s a really great basic pattern.

More on my blog if you’re interested.

Material Notes

Silk, thread.

    This top looks lovely and so simple. Dampen a clean tea towel, place in on top of the neck line and then press; that should help the bias sit flat.
