Oh, Rayon

Rayon is pretty sweet. It feels so soft and it drapes so beautifully. You do have to be a little careful with it when you wash it since it can shrink easily. But I think it’s so worth the trouble.

Two of my recent projects were made with rayon fabric with a touch of spandex.

First, I made a top for me.

I used my scoop t-shirt pattern as a base for this shirt. I changed the collar to be v-necked and I added one line of shirring down from the v.

Then I changed the sleeves a bit. First, I made the sleeve wider. Then I finished the raw edge of the sleeve by doing a rolled hem on my serger. And then I gathered the sleeve in at the bottom by sewing two lines of shirring around the sleeve.

Oh, and did you see the earrings I’m wearing in that first picture?

I got them from my friend Natalie’s Etsy shop. I think all her jewelry is so cute and it’s priced great too.


I also made another maxi skirt, this time without the ruffle at the bottom.

And that’s it for rayon. For now, at least!
