I went through my pattern stash looking for a blouse pattern for my latest purchase from Elliott Berman. Behold the loveliness that is Milly silk 3 ply. Since the image is copyrighted, I was unable to capture the image. Please use the link to see the fabric at the Elliott Berman Textiles site.
It seems to me, from handling the fabric, that it will not be as shifty as a silk chiffon to cut and sew. It seems a bit more stable. I love the hand. It’s not quite silk organza stiff and not quite as drape-y as a silk chiffon. It’s just right. 😉
Back to my stash… I discovered a distinct trend in my pattern stash. If I were to hazard a guess, the breakdown would look like this.
I found about 5 or 6 blouse patterns, none of which seem worthy of this fabric. I may have to go on a pattern hunt. I would welcome some suggestions. Ideally, one of the amazing fit patterns would be good I think, as I think it would be easier to tweak fit on a pattern which already includes the FBA I need. I am off to take a look at the selections.
Happy sewing everyone!
