Silk New Look 6732

I have made another flutter sleeve top from New Look 6732 (the same pattern from the Pink Cutie last blog post). This time I used a fine thin silk fabric remnant. It wrinkles easily but irons and holds a crease well.

  •  I thought the pink cutie version from the last post was a fraction too roomy so I re cut the pattern a size smaller - it seems quite a roomy cut - now sewing the size 8 and I don't generally buy this in ready to wear.
  • I hand basted the sleeve hems before sewing
  • To set the sleeves in I pinned then basted before sewing then overlocking the seams
  • The side seams, centre back and hems were all overlocked after sewing.
