Here’s another Gemma tank I’ve been wearing this summer! This one is made with Zephyr rayon (in colorway gust midnight) from Cotton + Steel, designed by my friend Rashida Coleman-Hale. Rashida can really do no wrong when it comes to me, I just think all of her designs are amazing. This one looks like it was brushed right onto the fabric. Fun. Also fun with turquoise flats, right? Bonus points for you if you can name the other post where I wore the turquoise flats without googling.
My original vision for this tank was that I would wear it to a wedding this spring with the highlighter yellow pleated skirt, shown below (that I did not make, by the way. It’s from JCrew; I have my limits, people). It didn’t end up happening because it was so cold the day of the wedding that I wore the skirt with a cashmere sweater instead; but here’s some pics of the outfit anyway. Oh well!
I find rayon challis to be surprisingly easy to finish with bias binding (see also: this rayon Washi maxi dress, whose binding also came out splendidly, if I do say so myself). It lays flat and behaves quite nicely compared to some other substrates, some of which can be downright tricky. *Coughs* Double gauze, I am looking at you.
Rayon is quite flowy and comfortable to wear, making it a great choice for Gemma!
Pattern coming soon! Yes, I am being a terrible tease.
