Another Silk Top
This top is made from another of the silk pieces I picked up in London in 2011. This one caught my husband's eye because he liked the colors and the geometric print. Great eye! I loved it too. Again since it was expensive, I bought 1 1/2 meters to make a short sleeve top. I chose to make Butterick 5610 view A. I made a size 12 without alteration. I wanted the top a little longer so I tuck it in or wear a belt with it.

It is funny how the shirt coordinates so well with the doors in my sewing room! I guess I really like that warm orangey color!
