Mottled Silk Charmeuse Bias Cowl Top & Elastic Waist Skirt (XL)

 

Purchased from MarcyTilton.com, this beautiful mottled mauve/skyblue/soft white silk charmeuse turned out perfect for this bias cut Cowl Top and elastic waist Skirt. I had started another Vogue pattern and never finished - ya know, one of those 'UFO's, but this fabric deserved a new life - and it was a delight with which to stitch! I came up with this cowl neck bias front flutter hem top (Cut with a Butterick Size 14 pattern), and a bias cut skirt with soft pleated overlay and easy-fit elastic waist.

 

I had considered mixing this into one garment with the Evelyn XL Sky Blue Silk/cotton/cashmere Sweater Jacket (see it HERE), but eventually decided to leave the Sweater Jacket 'as is' as it laundered BEAUTIFULLY!  9-23-20:  the blue jacket referred to and shown in some of the photos has sold.   

I even fashioned a Dior Rose Corsage from the silk charmeuse that you can elect to add to this garment (see Dropdown Menu) which, when worn on the Sweater Jacket, pulls this outfit together beautifully! I see this ensemble for a wedding or special occasion.........
