Must…find…blouse pattern…for…fabulous…silk

I bought ridiculous silk at the Vogue right before Christmas, two chunks of two yards each, from the $3 table. Bought one piece, realized folly, went back for a second.

I haven’t found the right blouse pattern for it yet. Something super simple to show off the irregular pattern of the fabric. Something with a little cap sleeve. Something in as few pieces as possible.
Then I was thinking one of the pattern lady’s gems might work. Especially since it was one of her few that I could cut to my own size instead of just her usual 18. And lately, I only want to wear dolman sleeves, long to the wrist or short.

Clearly I’m too chicken to experiment on the silk. And the one below is too complicated. Maybe lengthening one of the plain ones… Must find the time to make a muslin before the poor silk ends up lost in a stash.
