I made this top in about 2 1/2 hours based on New Look 6217 pattern view B. I lowered and shaped the back pattern piece to make a lower, dipped hem that I am so fond of lately. I also cut the back piece on the fold of the fabric to eliminate the center back seam. French seams were done for the side and shoulder seams. It doesn’t get much easier than this to make a quick luxe t-shirt top!
I used a lovely silk charmeuse in black purchased at Mill End Store in Milwaukie, Oregon (one of my favorite fabric stores in Portland) as they were running a 20% off silk sale.
I have been wanting a simple black silk tee shirt for some time now and am happy that I finally made one. I am sure I will wear this top often as it can be worn casually or dressed up.
I pinned some tops on Pinterest as inspiration:
Go Me! I made this top costing about $40 in gorgeous silk. Boom.
That’s it for today!
