Silk Crepe De'chine Blouse: McCalls 7093

I think I was in the mood for color blocking.  Which is why I ended up making two blouses in the same day.  This post is for this silk raglan top.  The fabric set on my to-sew pile for quite a while, during my "no sew" humdrum blah mood.  While I was in that ho-hum mood, I mentally constructed each top completely.  Here is the silk one....

Color-blocked Top Finished: Butterick 6287

Hey everyone, I had to do a quick top to get my sewing mojo back, so to speak.  Aside from having had throat surgery and other major holiday happening, I have been mentally on my moms cape jacket and have had issues with fabric stains and the like.  So, needless to say, my drive to work on that project was stammered.  I have been wanting to sew for sure.  That's why I decided to go ahead and knock out something quick for her to get me back into the game.  The fabric is the same beautiful quality double sided rayon/spandex knit I got from Sew Much Fabric as I got for my " almost reversible" dress.   She is out of this color, but I have my eye on this gorgeous blue jean/saffron version . I got this top completed in about 2 hours while periscoping the entire process during my regular "Sew & Chat" sessions .  I will try and let you know ahead of time when I will be doing a Live Sew & Chat, via my Instagram and Facebook page.  Just make sure you follow
