I made this lovely cold shoulder flounce silk top for a contest using Mood Fabric. I don’t know if I’ll win the contest or not, but the top was nice to make anyway. I used McCall’s pattern 7747 with a couple of minor changes. The fabric is the showcase, a beautiful watercolor floral print on silk chiffon. The fabric is very difficult to manage, but I have become used to working with silk since I sew quite a lot of it. I lined the bodice (instead of using the facing) using another silk chiffon layer in a deep navy to make it less sheer.
