Left over from some unselfish Christmas sewing I have been doing, was the tiniest piece of bird print chiffon. I had my heart set on another Sewaholic Belcarra for it's use. The only problem was there wasn't enough. I had enough for both the front and back in both length and width but not enough for sleeves.
After pondering briefly, I pinned the front sleeve to the front and the back sleeve to the back and cut the top out in two pieces...well four pieces if you count the sleeve bands.
Just like my lace Belcarra, I narrowed the neckline by 1.5cm. I used french seams for both the shoulder and side seams for duribility and made neck binding out of ivory voile curtaining from my stash. The whole project came together within an hour.
I think this is perhaps my favourite version to date and is already on regular rotation.
