Silk crepe No.2

This one is the second of the 4 colors I bought. This is a beautiful black, light weight silk crepe.. i decided to do a simple kimono sleeve blouse again, with the sleeve ending at elbow length.

I stabilized the outline of the garment with silk organza as usual. I cut it in the bias for curved seams and straight grain for the straight seams. It really works wonders, but the only problem is that the silk organza i have is a very stiff one. The shop did have a softer one, and somehow i bought this. So if the the garment is unlined, then the organza tapes that i put on the seam line gets very scratchy…

I didn’t line this one, basically because i was lazy, and i also didn’t have any good lining fabric. (Would hate to use polyester)

I know this is a silly pose but i wanted to show the kimono sleeve a lil better.

There are no closures for this top. Its a pretty simple top except for the sequin trim I’ve used. That trim is quite expensive. I bought it in commercial street, and apparently its sold only by the yard!! I was trying to do the conversion in meters and i think he pulled a fast one on me..Next time I’m carrying a conversion chart..

I laid the trim on the shoulder seam after it was all stitched up. I stitched it and then cut off the fabric underneath. (Like a lace insertion)

So there you go. Second one done..
