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!
