I love this top!

...but I just can't imagine spending that much for a cozy top to lounge around the house in which is basically where I would wear it. The body of the top is simple enough, but I'd really love to replicate that neckline. Is there a pattern out there with a neckline like this or does anyone have a top with a similar neckline that could explain a little bit what the pattern pieces might look like? I'm sure I could draft it if I had somewhere to start and maybe a few basic measurments...

thoughts? TIA!

Schnittquelle's shirt 'Oviedo' or 'Wilna' look pretty good, too.

Schnittquelle is a German pattern company, one size to each envelope. The sizing is very close to Burda's, and the instructions are minimal to say the least, but the designs are simple and really require very little thought.

I order them direct from the company and can help if you're interested but don't speak German.

How about New Look 6534? But I'm not certain how you would ruche it - but I think that has to do with the type of material of that top that gives it that ruching effect.

I noticed the fabric is 95% Tencel. Has anyone used that fabric in their sewing?
The info about it [Lenzig textiles] looks like tencel would be great for exercise clothes!
I also see this, "TENCEL is a branded lyocell fiber similar to rayon that comes from the pulp of eucalyptus trees," in a google search about it. Seems interesting - I wonder where it can be bought, and the cost...

Just my opinion, but the Butterick one looks like it would be the best, because it actually has a neckline that is on the shoulder.If you want something 'snuggly', you don't really want it off the shoulder!

I have that Butterick pattern. I agree that might be your best starting point. It's OOP but available in the BMV OOP sale right now for .99....79 if you're a BMV member.

Elona,

Oh my...I don't know whether to thank you or curse you...:p I think I have a new favourite line of patterns. I am in love with some many of the designs. Some really interesting style lines there. I might have to put off my next round of Style Arc patterns in favour of some Schnittquelle!

In your experience, if one was between sizes, would you go up or down? I'm just getting back into sewing for me and have no idea what my burda size is other than the last time I sewed a Burda envelope pattern I ended up with a tent (I was trying to be "honest" with myself when measuring, but I guess my denial went the other way!)

I do speak some German, so I should be okay there as long as I can pay via paypal. Narrowing it down to which patterns to try first is going to be tricky. =)

Thanks so much!
