Silk Crepe De Chine Tunic Blouse

I just finished this lovely silk crepe de chine tunic blouse in a beautiful shade of blue:

This was not the fastest thing I have sewn, as I took my time making couture seams and hand sewn finishes, even self-fabric covered buttons. This fabric is so lovely to wear, but quite finicky, delicate and slippery to manage and to sew, that I had to take my time for each section of the construction process.

I used New Look 6374 pattern, view A to make this top:

I have seen this style of top all over the place in stores, in magazines, on people, so I have gathered up a few images of the look I was going for with this top:

I look forward to wearing this new silk top, and most likely, I will be making it up again in other colors soon. Exciting!
