|Pattern Description: The pattern was for a wrap top, was planned to be made of thin knit fabric.|
Pattern Sizing: 34-42, I took the 34 and it actually fit. Usually all Burda 34 pattern are too big for me.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Not at all. Mostly since I used a much thicker fabric. Since the pattern was a little big, my sleeves became lowered which looks very stylish, so I didn't fix them to be as supposed to be on pattern. I actually think that what I came up is much nicer then their original plan
Were the instructions easy to follow? Couldn't understand the instructions at all, so I didn't use them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked that it was easy to sew and turned out a very special, stylish and interesting sweather tunic.
Fabric Used: Thick woven wool fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made it longer, and I didn't fix the sleeves to be higher as they should have been. As a result I had to fix the sleeves to make them lay flat. A very easy fix, pinned it on me and then cut the extras and sew.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would sew it again, but will use lighter material. I also love the collar, I can play with it forever and it lays differently every time. And always stylish.
Conclusion: A very interesting pattern, I wouldn't recommend using the material they suggested since it's too light and then the top has no shape, but using something thicker gives unexpected (in a good way) results. The pattern is easy to sew, and fun to play around to make something very special
