I believe this is my first time sewing up Joann's silky print and totally love it. I even went so far as to make a pit stop at Joann's yesterday hoping to score some more, but in the end nothing jumped out at me.
I really like the fit of this blouse and love... love the silky print. I used the same techniques that I used for the first one, serged all the seams, stitched down the seam allowances, edge stitched along the neckline to ensure the facing doesn't roll to the outside, 1/4" hems for the sleeves & blouse and sew-on snap at the v-point. The top went together effortlessly.
Side seam with opening for tie
I made a tank using New Look 6735, which is my go-to tank and vest pattern.
Used a sheer novelty knit fabric a/k/a mystery knit. This tank is just 2 pieces and serged the garment together, serged neckline, armholes and hemline and fold to the inside and straight stitched....quick & painless...
Outfit of the Day...
since the top is longer than the blazer, I donned a skinny belt and adjusted the tank length for the jacket.
I have a sinister take on art and love this graffiti splattered background..
I think its the raw urban in me..... wink
I enjoyed the quick & painless tank and cut another out this morning.... so until the next time
Have A Great Week.
