I wanted a simple flowy top so that when it’s tucked in to the skirt, it would give it a blouson effect. I just based it off of one of my other shirts. Luckily, it turned out great except that it’s slightly tight around my arms. It is also a high-low hem which is my favorite to wear as a mom!
I would say this is my first time I can say I successfully did bias binding and am happy with the result. The top is fully lined so I didn’t have to finish any edges except the neck, and I did the same technique on the hem by sewing the lining to the chiffon fabric. The day after I finished the shirt, I remembered that I wanted to do a keyhole in the back! How could I forget the best detail! Oh well, I might go back to put one in eventually.
Here’s how to sew chiffon.
