Labor Day is a blustery rainy day here in Homer with winds at 40 mph. Can't even let the dogs run today so I'm inside all day sewing, not a bad thing to do as I finished my silk top.
After the photo of me I added one more button to the bottom as you can see Kalen there peeking at me. The buttons are vintage from Deb Pan's breeder who sent me a stash of vintage sewing items. This dupioni silk has a glow to it I love how it came out. There are small pockets in the font yoke area.
Well moving on as I am know to do I have cut out this muslin (aka for any scrap material) for the next dress I'm making out of red gabardine which is all lined in red satin. I need to be sure the top fits me before cutting the good stuff. The pattern is retro with a peplum, straight skirt with back slit, long raglan sleeves, and a 12" back zipper found it on Gertie's blog awhile back.
