After downloading this pattern


I have a sheet that looks like this


Does anyone know what the pieces labeled 4 and 5 are? They are never mentioned in the cutting or sewing instructions and appear to be a peplum, which you can see from the pattern, doesn't exist.

Does the blouse have an essentially empire seam? The bodice pieces aren't nearly long enough to create the wrap around the waist. Those peplum-like pieces must make the ties some how. It does look strange. Good luck.

No. I forgot to mention the tie pieces are cut without a pattern. Measurements are given.

All I can think is that there is another version of this top somewhere that would include some sort of peplum. I wonder where it is since I might like it and I've already used an extra 15 sheets of printer paper.

I looked in my magazine (I hope I got it correctly that it is the pattern #121 from Burda 03/2012), and those two pieces don't belong to the pattern you downloaded. I think I recognized them among the pieces that belong to the next pattern in the magazine, this cardigan (pattern # 122):



Looks like you got a bonus, lol! You can make that cardigan, too!

I don't know how to insert a clickable link in my post, but anyway, you can find that cardigan here: http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/long-cardigan-032012.

Thanks! I was hoping there was a pattern like this. I think it looks different enough to have one of each. Yay!

Barb, I remember downloading a pattern from Burda and thinking I had got the wrong one. But it was just a different permutation of the pattern I had wanted, I think it was the dress version of the top. So it was 2 patterns for the price of one, better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick, as they say in Oz. ;)

I guess it simplifies things for Burda with their inventory, so they don't mind.

100% correct. I did the same thing as you did. I have made that top and it is very easy and also very lovely.

Aren't they the pieces for the bottom of the shirt? I see a bodice front and back (1 and 2), a sleeve (3), and the shirt front and back (4 and 5). The bodice pieces aren't long enough or wide enough to make the wrap, and those large angled pieces look just right for that (I'm working on a shirt right now whose pattern pieces look very similar to these 5). The only thing that stumps me is you say they're not mentioned in the instructions. Was there another set of printouts that DOES have the bottom section of the shirt, and IS in the instructions? Otherwise, what are you supposed to use for that?

I've noticed recently that some Burdastye "collections" include several pieces that are all part of the same pattern PDF.

For example, this girls' shirt 147A has a note at teh end of the description:

"Note: This is the same pattern PDF as the Drawstring Long Shirt and the Ruffle Blouse"
