Silk Stella top

Glamour? Oh what to make... for Decembers Social Sew.
I'm not one to sew up a new dress for every holiday party. Even though I suggested this theme. I just don't have the time... And by the way do you remember what everyone wore last year? I don't. 

So this year I made a silk blouse to be worn with one of my RTW skirts. The Stella top is a pattern from the latest La Maison Victor magazine they used a satin fabric with 94% polyester and 6% elastane. I used a nicer (and cheaper) fabric with 96% silk and 4% elastane. The fabric is again from the fabric sales. They really do have a great selection of designer fabrics. 

I made a size 34 without any alterations. The blouse is supposed to be loose fitting and the patterns from La Maison Victor always fit me well. So I made the decision to start immediately with my nice fabric. I like the pattern a lot, but it is not one that I would use more than once. And the best thing is that it is something that can be finished in an afternoon. 

The nice thing with this blouse is that I could wear it more after the holidays, I'm thinking black jeans and a thick wool cardigan.  What are you wearing? Do you make something new for every occasion? 

Pattern: Stella top, La Maison Victor
Fabric: 96% silk 4% elastane from the fabric sales 30€
