Fantasy Silk Top ;)

Added Sep 28, 2013

Nedre Vats, Norway






I made this silk top based on a pattern from a Spanish magazine, Tendencias de Moda no. 5/2012. I bought this lovely silk fabric in Singapore and I love all these nice colors :) This is a very easy top, but I combined the silk fabric with shiny sports stretch at the bottom of the sleeves and around the neck. I decided to have a thin lace around the waist as well, to cheer it up :)

Material Notes

Silk and sports stretch




Garment Type
Casual, Evening Wear, Preppy
Knits/Jersey, Silk

    I recognise that fabric!! It looks even better now you’ve whipped it up into a top though! I can’t believe how fast you are, Ellen! Lovely top! :-)
