Silk Blouse

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I started this shirt last year, and it went in the 'I am over it corner.' I'm proud of getting it out and completing t - buttons to be added yet! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Persevere with the overlocking of the edges, my Babylock Evolve was fab once I selected the correct stitch.

Q&A with Pohutukawa

Scheri Manson asked:
Wow silk. Your skills from tailoring shirts and working with silks has resulted in a beautiful blouse. Keep them coming.
Pohutukawa answered:
Thank you - you are always
Linda74Sews asked:
I have not taken the silk class. what kind of seams did you use? French? blouse is lovely.
Pohutukawa answered:
Hi, this one I made a year ago before the silk class, so they are just overlocked. Thanks for your comments, what are you making?
Peccata asked:
Wow! I love it! Do you use washable silks? It looks very sheer. Did you underline or line the bodice?
Pohutukawa answered:
Hi, thanks for your comments. I will have to line it, but it is so hard to get nice fabric in my small town, I will have to wait until I can go shopping for more fabric for my stash!!
