Treadlette Tuesday: Sue's Blouse

Sue made this drapey sleeveless top from a soft rayon challis with a simple, single-color print. The design is by Marcy Tilton, and features all her favorite elements: unusual piecing, artistically placed tucks, and an asymmetric hemline.

The back is just as interesting, with more asymmetry and waistline tucks for a smooth, contoured fit.

The pattern is Vogue 9317 by Marcy Tilton. Sleeve and neckline options keep it unique and versatile!
