White Star Top
Penny Muncaster-Jewell

This white star top is made of the white silk dupioni, and uses a funky star that I digitized in my PE-Design software. I used a prom dress top pattern Simplicity 7220. I added Swarovski® crystals to the centers.

To create the buttonholes on the back I did two parallel rows of satin stitches, and then did bar tacks to complete the buttonholes. This helped strengthen the back and prevents buttonhole gaps. Also the small buttons have stars carved in them. It is sometimes all about the buttons.

The Sky is not the limit, nor are the stars. It’s your imagination!
