Stretch Silk Asymetric Sleeveless Top

I made this top from Vogue 8907 view C in an orange stretch silk charmeuse. I love the asymetric hem of this top that gives it a little edge and reminds me of BCBG styles.

The only changes I made to this pattern was to make French seams for the side and shoulder seams, and skip the neck and armhole facings and make self bias binding instead.

This was a pretty easy top to sew, but I was not thinking and did not measure the pattern before cutting and cut a small which is too small for me, so it is going to a good friend who is skinny, fit and adorable (don’t hate!) and I know she likes this kind of style.

I plan to make this pattern again for myself in a size or two larger as I think it is fun without being too edgy, plus I have some great BCBG shoes that would look really cool with this top!

That’s it for today!
