A Top for Me!


This top is from ivory silk dupioni--an easy pattern but I sure made an ordeal out of it! It is an easy Simplicity Summer Trends pattern #0632 size 12. The fabric I got from Fabric Depot in Portland via the web. I made a size 12 and like the fit. For the drawstring casing I practiced on my new (to me) Evolve and used the rolled hem to finish the edges of a strip of fabric. I stitched this to the right side and used satin ivory ribbon for the string itself. Not sure this is really "me" but I like the way it turned out and will wear it with black dress slacks for a nice dinner out this summer.

It turn out beautifully! At least wear it once, even if it is a bit out of your comfort zone. You will look elegant in that top with black trousers.
