I wore this last night.

Blouse is washed dupioni.  Surplice style with a setin notched sleeve.  I put the tie slighly above the waist.  I pinned it in several places and liked it there.  The surplice wrap is secured with snaps.  This keeps the neckline in place. 

I put a bead trim on the hem of the capris.

I love the blouse and I am glad to be reminded of a notched sleeve. I have something on the design board now if I can get material and that sleeve would be really nice. The whole outfit is so attractive as are you, Karen.

Lovely colour on you,

I swear I have the exactly same colour of dupioni in my stash.
I bought a bunch on clear out last year for 8$ a meter for the 150cm width!...I KNOW!!!
I wash my dupioni too, who wants to pay for dry cleaning?
You loose some lustre and body, but it still looks stunning when pressed.

The capris are a perfect pairing.

Beautiful job, Karen! Thanks so much for sharing. 

I've never sewn with that type of silk fabric and was wondering if you had any comments to give regarding the construction? 

Hope this isn't a silly question, but did you line the garments? 

The blouse looks so crisp and elegant, and I really like the trim on the capris, too!

Karen,

You look fantastic! Very nicely done, as usual.

I'd love to make an outfit just like it for myself......

I kept construction simple. I pinked the seam allowances. No underlining or lining.

I split the facing at the waist so the necklne facing and lower edge were both cut on grain.

On the sleeve hem, I did a cut on facing instead of sewing it on, to elminate bulk (no interfacing in sleeve hem).

Neckline interfacing very light weight press on tricot.

Love it! Are the capris in a similar weight fabric to the top?

Thanks for the photos - I was admiring a silk/cotton duppioni this week and thinking of a surplice wrap with an asymmetrical hem.

Capris are a tighter weave silk matte. It was not washed. I wanted to keep the texture smooth. I have washed this fabric in the past to change the texture.They are lined. I did a Hong Kong finish on the facing. I fastened the facing by stitching in the ditch cf, side and tacking next to the invisible zipper.

Your top is very nice, the colour is really great,too. I would be interested if you would share your settings with us. i.e. darts?, shaping? etc. It's not that I want to make an exact copy, but I feel that if one knows what was used and can see the results it helps when designing something.

It's the surplice with 2 inches of bust and hip ease.  Shoulder princess.  For the waist I drafted with two darts and only sewed the shoulder princess seam.  This gave extra waist ease - about 3 -4 total inches of ease.  I did this because I was not sure if I wanted the extra darts or not.

I tend to design as I sew. 

Finished length 24 inches.  The tie is about 1 inch above the actual waist - I tried it several places and liked that best.

VERY cute outfit, Karen! I LOVE that magenta!

I'm wearing my PMK sloper as I type, making a few tweaks, but I've now declared it wearable (once I sew the seams for real, it's only basted). Then I'm going to be a sewing fiend! Well, while we are home, anyway.

Karen, did you about use back waist darts and did you use a shoulder dart?

I only have the princess seam (dart) in back and not the second dart.

Back shoulder dart is part of the princess seam.

How did you work with the notch on the sleeve with the cut on facing?

Folded it up.  Sewed the notch and trimmed out excess fabric. Turned to the right side.  This is the same as a sew on facing except I didn't have the fabric along the fold line.
