Silk PJ

Silk PJ, originally uploaded by fmirela.

This is an older project I finished last year. The pattern is from La Mia Boutique, can’t remember which issue. The ruffles turned out great, there was a problem with the neckline, which turned out very deep, so this is now a camisole for the bedroom only…and not my bedroom, it was a gift to a friend of mine. There’s matching shorts to go with it.

Clear elastic tape is incorporated in the 3 step zig zag stitch at neckline…but it still turned out too wide:

Rolled hem using embroidery thread with the overlock machine:

There were left-over angel cutouts which I had the pleasure of needle “felting” together with my embellish-er machine onto a little strapless top.
