This fabric was a Pitt Trading silk remnant. It’s very smooth, light weight and soft so the tiger that left its spots on this fabric has great taste in textiles. Again this was a designer remnant.
I loved the feel of this remnant and it’s been great to wear while trekking though the Jungle January heat. This style has enough structure at the neckline without sticking to you. The soft gathers on the sleeves are the other favourite feature (View D). I did a second version with the table runner fabric but it’s now a wadder. The round neckline seemed higher and tighter and the sleeves kept pulling so I think the trick with this top is to use a fine fabric.
There are darts at the back but this is a basic pull-over top. Truly – it’s a pull-on top.
