This is a red rayon challis self drafted top! Yes, I designed it myself!
Looks pretty good with my new boots, eh? I realize you can hardly see them with the lighting. They are dark brown with a black band at the top.
I have a thing for rayon challis. It is exceptional to wear. It feels like cotton. It flows like a charmeuse. It is w-a-y easier to sew than charmeuse! The only issue I have is finding it! Often when I do find it, the pattern printed onto it is hideous. I know it is used for men’s hawaiian shirts, but come on! This was some challis I purchased a while ago from Fabric.com.
As you can see, the front is pretty plain. The sleeves have a little bell cuff with an outside pleat. You can see a bit from this back view.
Here you can see the cuff, as well as the back pleat. It gives a little extra fabric where it is needed : )
Overall, I’m very pleased with this top!
Happy Creating everyone!
