Yellow silk and purple polka dots

The ruffled shoulder blouse reappeared as a yellow silk top. The change of fabric and lack of ruffles changed the look of this pattern, but not in a bad way!

What else did I change?

Organza was used this time instead of interfacing because the yellow silk was very light weight. You can see it here on the cuff. I love the pearlescent sheen of organza. Even though only I know about it once the garment is constructed, it still makes me happy.

I sewed the organza onto the cuff at the seam lines and then trimmed the edges as close as possible to the stitching. The cuff was doubled back so this gave a double layer of organza. I only used a single layer on the front facing and the stand collar.

French seams all around, mais bien sûr. It is gorgeous fine silk after all!

She’s pretty cute don’t you think?! And every one of those buttonholes was exactly the same… because…

I have a new sewing machine!
