Silk is wonderful fabric, perfect for tops, blouses and shirts, that means all clothes which we wear close to the body. I read somewhere that silk has even health properties. That's great news :-) you can look beautiful and treat yourself.
To this refashion I used men's silk shirt with embossed pattern and beautiful buttons.
I didn't change whole shirt. I left those buttons. I couldn't discard them as they were really beautiful, from ivory as I see, I decided they will look perfectly at the back of the top.

Top is extremely comfortable.
