It was as if Jo-Ann’s was expecting me. I arrived in the pouring rain without an umbrella to get supplies for the online Couture Dress class with Susan Khalje and walked right into this beautiful turquoise silk dupioni fabric. “Hello, Jo-Ann’s understands you just made a skirt from your daughter’s abandoned Lilly dress and want to wear a turquoise top with it – try this.”
The Jo-Ann’s in my town doesn’t stock silk!
I was immediately sidetracked from Susan Khalje’s class, bought the silk, which is much cheaper at Mary Jo’s, and started sewing.
This is the third time I’ve made this Simplicity Cynthia Rowley dress pattern as a top, and it was an uneventful project. For some excitement I added a lining.
