Wrap blouse Pattern Sizing:
34-42 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes Were the instructions easy to follow?
Since Im currently living in Holland temporarily, my latest BurdaStyle Mags are printed in Dutch. Thank goodness I took Afrikaans at school making it easier to understand. I read over them once, hit google translate to clarify a few words but it was pretty simple. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked that it was so easy to put together....especially since this was my very first BS Mag pattern ever...I know, I know, an intermediate sewer & this is my first. I have no idea why coz ive perved over many BS Mag patterns before & even cut them out - just never got to the projects i guess. Fabric Used:
Well this was the biggest reason for tackling this particular pattern as a first Burda. I was browsing the issue & saw this top & knew instantly which fabric I wanted to use...
I had this fabric left over from a top I made many years ago. Its a semi-see through poly georgette Id say. Small white, red & pink spots. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Yes. I did not use the interfacing on the flap over piece. I wanted the front portion to drape naturally. I wanted this top to really be loose & soft. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew this blouse again. I could use this blouse as a basic for my wardrobe so I could see it in a plain black, white, anything really. Conclusion:
A wonderful pattern. I made this blouse in size 42 purely because it was my first Burda Mag pattern as mentioned. I didn't know what the sizing would be like as opposed to Vogue/McCalls/Butterick etc so I erred on the side of caution & cut the biggest size. I figured I could take it in quite easily if need be which I did slightly at the sides. I could easily have cutt a 40 but at least now I know.
