|Pattern Description: |
Loose fitting top with princess seams, round neckline, neck and armhole binding and flared sleeves.
I made the largest size available, size 13. I am usually a Burda 38.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it was pretty accurate to the both the line drawing and photo.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions are in Japanese, but the illustrations are very clear and easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the shape, boxy tops are my friend! And the flared sleeve detail is quite striking. My only dislike was in the handsewing instructions for the binding. I used a stretch fabric so ignored that part of the book!
Grey marle viscose/elastane jersey. I had assumed the pattern called for stretch fabric, then realised, due to the hand sewing that it was actually drafted for a woven.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I had to take the top in a bit to account for the stretch fabric.
Took side seams in by 1cm.
Raised the CF neckline by 2cm.
Took 3cm off the length.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I will. A stripe version is on the cards, and if I get tired of the flared sleeve style, then this will be a useful princess seam top pattern.
This is an unusual top, but it is very comfy to wear and I like the fact that it is a tshirt and a dressy top in one. I am curious to see what it will be like in a woven.
