Read about the life of a girl who spends time admiring scraps of fabric, taking photos of clothes and has a sewing machine instead of TikTok. Welcome to The Silver Fashionista! I love blogging since it combines my loves of writing and fashion.
I recently opened my business, and the clothes I've sewed are available to purchase! Most of the proceeds are going to charity. Make sure to check out the Shop page!

I ordered new sewing patterns on Etsy and they came! The one I chose has three dress designs, and I cannot wait to sew one of them. However, I don't have enough fabric for a whole dress, so I used part of the dress patterns to make a off-the-shoulder top. I've never actually sewn anything off-the-shoulder, so it's ten dollars well spent!
This fabric I chose is a vibrant but delicate lilac colour. Up close, it has tiny, specks of purple glitter. It's satin, like the bomber jacket I made (Recently I've Sewed) and is light and swirly.
There are five pieces of elastic sewn in this shirt: at the bottom part of each sleeve, at the top of the sleeves, and at the neckline. If you pull the elastic while sewing it down to the fabric it contracts back and ruffles, like this. Plus, having that firm material helps the shirt fit better.
Well, that's my shirt! I can't wait to wear it (when I find an occasion fancy enough to.) Maybe I can just wear it for fun around the house in quarantine?
