    britex-gathering-header What do you guys think about my wild new blouse? No, I am not going to Woodstock and yes, I am totally feeling this groovy fabric (peace, love, and Britex Fabrics). The pattern is the SBCC Gibson and I had not made it until planning this project and I'm so glad I did, especially in this beautiful butterfly print silk crepe de chine! . I know the word "silk" can strike fear in a sewist's heart, but this was not an especially difficult fabric to sew. And if you are still nervous about making something with silk then check out this blog post I wrote with some tips on making it a little easier.
