Rather than wait for a pattern sale, simply shortened the recently sewn Burda 03/2010 # 104 to tunic length.
The necklace is from Anthropologie. I love big, chunky necklaces!
The fabric is a Vera Wang mustard colored satin-backed crepe purchased last year during fabric.com's $1.95 Vera Wang fabric sale.
The top is loose enough to be essentially pullover; I did add a button and loop to the top. I used small rectangle of fabric and a loop turner to make the loop; if you're a new sewer, I highly recommend that you grab this nifty little notion.
Sticking to my resolution, I tried a new finish at the bottom: I sewed a small stitch at the seam allowance and frayed the hem (inspired by the JCrew Francille fray blouse in the last post).
I dunno, what do you think? I kinda like it!
I saw a few of these silky T's in January's InStyle:
You had suggested that Butterick 3030 might be a good woven blouse T pattern (and SO easy: raglan sleeves and no darts). A may try it in the spring in a linen version: Gray Line Linens in the Garment District had lovely metallic coated linen that had my name all over it...
