silk jersey top

silk jersey remnant rescued from tessuti
mokuba fold-over elastic trim
stretch interfacing

Silk jersey. Slinky, fine. A gorgeous drape. Don't leave it to the likes of Calvin. Just watch Cesar in The Fashion Show effortlessly turn out gown after gown in this gorgeous fabric, to give your confidence to work with it a boost. 

The edges are finished with an overlocked rolled hem. But it wasn't becoming of the silk's lustrous finish.... what to do, what to do...? Mokuba fold-over elastic has a similar sheen and fine profile. Done.

The sloper that came from my variation of the Lydia top has proven its worth again.

  1. Nice. Very simple and elegant. Where do you get your Mokuba fold over elastic from?
