New Look 6729 "Missoni" silk jersey version


The last of my 4 recent pieces is my favourite. I made another version of New Look 6729 wrap tunic in this gorgeous Missoni (allegedly) silk jersey.  


This is the first time I have used silk jersey and I had concerns that it would be slippery to sew with, have a tendency to get chewed up by my sewing machine and also that it would be too flimsy. I was wrong on all three counts. This fabric was a joy to work with and the finished top feels so luxurious and comfortable. I love it and will definitely get some more silk jersey when I next feel a fabric purchasing spree coming on. I've made and reviewed this pattern before so lets go straight to photos!
