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....

I made this one using a silk crepe de chine from SMFabric.com.  The black is on sale and still in stock but the white is ALL gone..because I bought all the rest.  NahNah.  Hehe.  I made sure to pretreat by hand washing in using "color catcher" as recommended by Roz.  So keep that in mind when color-blocking light and dark.  Ask me how I know.

I did "mental planning" and construction of this top, which made completing it extremely quick.  When I got ready to sew, I did the construction live on Periscope.  I know the ladies thoroughly enjoyed the "Sew & Chat" sessions I do regularly on periscope.  Please follow so you can join in the fun when I'm in the mood to "Sew & Chat".  Otherwise, you will have to wait and catch the replays when I get around to uploading them to my YouTube channel.

Baby it's cold outside.  But, I wanted to get the pictures in the sunlight for you all.  I haven't taken a really photoshoot in quite some time.  Secret:  these pics were taken with my iPhone 6s.

Pattern Details:
McCalls 7093 view C.  I cut the side panels on the bias for a certain contrast in the white.  I used french seams throughout, including the shoulder darts.  Fitting-wising, I did a forward should adjustment and a FBA using the pivot and slide method.  
Here is the periscope video if you are so inclined to watch:
