I just finished this lovely silk georgette top using Butterick 5997 sewing pattern. It was a fairly straightforward blouse to make, the most difficult parts were the pintucks and sewing with this very delicate and lightweight fabric. I made French seams throughout and made little self covered buttons for the cuffs.

I acquired this Nanette Lepore designer silk from Fabric Depot in Portland, Oregon. They have some great silks and other fabrics there lately! This fabric has a lovely soft hand and drapey sheerness to it. It is sort of an abstract small geometric print that looks a little like an animal print, but isn’t. You can barely see the details of the top as the print of the fabric really hides them.

I’ve seen many tops like this and have a few inspirations here:

I really like my new top and can see sewing it again in other fabrics and colors. It is really comfortable and great to throw on over skinny jeans or tuck into a skirt or pant. Maybe I’ll sell one or two as well, but not quite at $250 or more!
