The fifth piece but the first in jersey and a plain fabric.
It's for my pal Mommy Noi-noi who's mad about grey marle.
This is the source...
...a ratty 5-year-old bed-going cami that has seen better days.
I don't know if I'd work with any stretchy fabric again for The Empress Dowager's New Jewels. It's just too soft - I had to double-layer it to shape the "stones" and that still didn't help its lack of shape-holding property.
But a single-tone fabric allows the necklace to be worn reversed without making anyone dizzy like a printed one would with its mish-mash of colours on top of the fussy pleats.
I really like the raw "granite"-ness of this piece.
Also like the fact that I've used up every bit of my old cami right down to the straps. Wonder if there's anything else in the wardrobe that I can recycle...
Edit-to-add: See the "jewels" on their new mistress here.
