Antique Redwork Squares + Seersucker XL Top 


Eight antique redwork squares combine with REAL  seersucker to create this top using a Size 18 pattern.  Several men's silk ties are utilized as bindings and borders to define the redwork squares and to emphasize the design lines.  Sleeves are cut on the bias for extra 'give'.  Fabric from a silk tie also binds the neckline and sleeve hems.  

This garment took MANY hours to design and execute.  The price - even though one of my higher, in no way reflects the many hours in this garment.
