Very timely. I've been wondering what an FBA would look like on a wrap top, or rather wrap dress.

Cute, I've got to try this pattern. It would be nice to not have to shorten evrything in the body for a change, sometimes being petite height and body proportions is a pain ;)

Looks great Belinda. Did you add any length to the pattern or is it the same length as drafted by Burda? JulieR, Queanbeyan, NSW

wish I had enough of my stretch lace left to make this one-- it's beautiful!

JulieR, I added 5" to the length. Burda's drafted length is 19". My finished length is 24". HTH

Thanks Belinda - I've been waiting for this! Looks great and the colour is fun. (I was expecting metallic gold). Did you use the selvedge for the hem?

Very nice Belinda! Lovely colour.

Sew4Fun said...
Cheryl, no I didn't use the selvedge for the hem as the stripes went across the fabric. Can't wait to see your version. :)

You did a beautiful job. I missed the May Burda and consequently this pattern. I was in a shopping mall recently and came across a store called Olson Europe, I think. It was interesting to see styles one sees in Burda including a stretch lace cardigan like you made. It was coordinated with a matching long sleeve T-shirt rather than a camisole and also looked nice.
