I wanted to try sewing satin, found this fabric at the thrift store. Just after I got it I saw Resi’s tunic and was inspired to try the same pattern.
The pattern fits nice, but has a lot of ease in the sleeves, although this can be my fault too or the type of fabric. Satin is fustrating but not as bad as I had anticipated. Worst is the hem, couldn’t do a better job on it.
On the good side, I put on my first invisible zipper, so happy I learned this technique.
Sorry for the wrinkles, I just don’t feel like ironing more this thing for a while (!).

Material Notes

Silver satin





Burda, Resi

    It look perfectly sewn. Love your zipper I find installing zppers intimidating. As for the hem I must say that it works and looks always better if you baste it by hand. And it saves your nerves…
