BWOF 10-2008-114 Silk Jersey Knit top

This is a much-reviewed and widely loved pattern from the October 2008 Burda World of Fashion Magazine. I was really excited to work with this lovely silk jersey knit that I found in the silk bargain bin at G Street Fabrics in Rockville, MD. Viva la Bargain Bin!

For full details, see my review, for now. More here when I get a chance.

My delicious fabric... that came in a tube. D'oh!

I needed one piece on a different fold... there was nothing for it but to cut the tube.

On the advice of other PR reviewers, I left off the seam allowance on the underbust seam to compensate for my short waistedness. I also narrowed the underarm bat wing a little bit. I also left off the seam allowances on the side seams. In the end, I probably could have used them. I blended down to a 1/4" seam at the sides.

And... I'm quite happy with the finished product.
