Description

I have used micro satin for this top which is very soft and delicious. Around the facing I’ve used satin bias tape. Since the neck opening is rather big I decided to make small ribbon with a press-button on each side. Then you can easily press on your bra-straps, so they does not show :)

    Pretty top, Ellen! Love the luscious fabric and you look so lovely in it. That’s a great tip to avoid the bra straps, thank you for sharing :)

    the silver is so beautiful on you, Ellen. You glow! the choice of the contrasting bias is a fun surprise on the inside. Clever about the tab for bra strap. You’re so helpful with hints you give on your projects. I could see this top with dark skinny jeans and those awesome red pumps your husband gave you :) – curry

    Ellen this is stunning with the blue skirt. I love how rich the grey silk looks and it drapes so well on you. Love the snaps on the inside for the bra straps. I’m going to try this as I normally just use ribbon so I can tie it to my bra. You look fabulous x

    i fell in love on the first sight of your top, it looks so chic & elegant! i also love your idea of adding the satin ribbon+snap buttons to attach it to the bra strap. i’ll remember it next time i have a top with similar problem. thank you so much for the insight! :D

    I love how this looks on you, the color fits you great.I have made this one and at the end had to add those bra strips becouse the neck line is really huge. I love the sleeves!!!
