What materials did you use? I used dupioni silk to edge band the neckline and armholes of this hand-dyed cotton dotted swiss blouse. For the neckline, I also inserted dupioni-wrapped piping that I happened to have in my stash from a previous project. I love the end result, it really gives it a special touch.

What are you most proud of? I stitched the front sides by hand, and love the end result.
