Self-portraits are so much fun... especially with a Syrah!

Project Details

Pattern: Simplicity 4112, View B
Fabric: Polka dot georgette (100% silk)
Notions: Five 3/8" buttons; 1/4" bias tape

I decided to do this very popular Builty by Wendy shirt is a sheer. I too had avoided sheers for quite sometime and decided to take on the challenge. This is a very simple pattern and if it had been sewn in a fabric with more body, it could have been completed in probably an afternoon. Since I sewed this in the sheer, I decided to take my time.

I gave most of the construction details in my previous post, but there was one other thing that I didn't include. The additional things I did was a bias-bound armscye. Since I used french seams, I decided that this was the best method for finishing the set-in sleeve seam allowance without resorting to serging, which would have looked unattractive from the right side of this sheer blouse. I did this by sewing the sleeve to the garment and wrapping a bias strip around the seam allowance. The front facing is done by turning back the the CF edge three times for a "self-interfacing" effect. Since my fabric was so sheer, I really feel that I could have used some interfacing right there.

I like the fact that this top is very cute and trendy and I love the mandarin collar. I decided to layer mine over a black cami. It can be worn untucked with the sash or tucked without it.
