Pulled-Thread Silk Blouse

May 09, 2011

Full-front view.

This blouse was made from Simplicity 2339 without the sleeves.  I made it out of silk broadcloth and used Madiera silk floss for the pulled-thread technique on the collar, front band and pocket.  I used bias strips made from the silk to bind the armholes.  Again, using the Madeira silk floss, I hand embroidered bullion roses into the buttons.  Pulled-thread was a new technique I learned from a recent issue of Sew Beautiful.
