My New Clothes

Silk matalesee blouse. I wore this last week and someone was astounded that I made the blouse. This is one of the simplest patters I've ever had, but I thought of a friend of mine who keeps saying that not everyone can do what I do. 
I really like positive and negative prints. This black and cream skirt has cream and black godets. 
If I ever decide to use metallic thread on a 6-gore skirt with godets again, someone please boop me on the head. I had more problems with that fussy thread. I did all the tricks, but I had too many seams to embellish and it was more than the thread could take. 

I made a blouse out of the cream and black print and bound the neck with hand-made black and cream bias binding.
