I had to take a deep deep breath when I cut this beautiful Liberty of London silk fabric. I came up with this top – loosely based on the cowl neck dress of Burda Magazine 8/2011 – to show off the beautiful drape of the fabric. I modified the pattern quite a lot to have the cowl hanging from the shoulders.
All the seams are French seams, and I hand-sew all the rolled hems at the neckline and cap sleeves. The fabric was really slippery so I hand-basted every seam before machine-sewing. I also added a band with two vintage buttons (from my mother’s stash) at the side – hand-finished as well.
Liberty of London silk (vintage), two buttons (vintage too!)
