A Top for Miss Susan

I pulled apart a second-hand satin (I think it's rayon) top to make this top for Susan. It was originally a wrap-around halter-neck thing, but once pulled apart I re-draped the pieces as a racer-back. It ties loosely at the front, but remains open.

After watching the recent Valentino documentary, I had a hankering for an entirely hand-stitched garment. I roll-hemmed all the edges before slip-stitching the pieces together. I'd love to do more of this sort of work, but PhD time is running out and I'd like to make quite a few more pieces before examination...
