A self drafted pattern, 2nd time in use. (See the Silver Lining project) The fabric is a silk satin devore, blue/black. I loved the fabric when I first set eyes on it, about 4 years ago, easily!! I never had the right pattern to use, nor the right occasion to cut it up for. That’s my excuse, anyway! I did decide it would make the perfect top for going to n old friend’s wedding reception in May, except that I decided this the day before. There was never going to be enough time to get the top make properly, so it say, cut out, on my sewing desk until 2 weeks ago, when I stopped procrastinating about it. Now it’s finished, and I love it! It is all french seamed, collar, cuffs and opening tabs are interfaced with fine sheer fusible.
