Silk Organza Wraps in Bronze and Coral





Recently added to my Etsy shop: two kimono-style jackets in silk organza, the first dyed in a range of bronze tones and the second in coral colors. The pattern is a simplified version of a jacket design from the Sewing Workshop. I chose to eliminate the more difficult French-seam construction (organza is tricky to work with, especially for a novice like me) in favor of a three-thread rolled hem done on my serger, using an accent color for the threads.

Very diaphanous (is that how you spell it?). Someone suggested that I should make lingerie out of the fabric. Believe me, you can find that on Etsy, too!

Thank you to my friend Joan Rusitzky for serving as my model.
