Tomorrow I will be cutting the sleeveless version of this pattern. I want to be able to wear this with a black velvet jacket that I have.
If you look on my archives, I made a top for Caitlin a while back out of this very same Anna Sui fabric, only hers was green and white. I happened to see this version on clearance, as well as the purple version as well. I just loved this fabric so much, that I ended up buying a couple yards of both the black and the purple. It is silk chiffon, and the first time I sewed it, I was a bit terrified that my sewing machine would chew it up for some reason. My fears were unfounded, and it was a dream to sew. I hope this little top comes out the way I'm hoping it will.
Thank you for all the nice compliments on my dress. Caitlin took some shots of me in it.
