|View / Size used: I used model 101, with the self fabric strap instructions from the dress 102, I cut a size 40|
Fabric Used: A less-than-a-yard remnant of bird print silk georgette from Mood. It had some damage on the fabric, but the damage is on the back, and mostly in the seam allowance. This fabric was super shifty, and probably caused the project to take 3 times longer, but I love the result, so who cares!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Just the strap thing
Were the instructions easy to follow? Well, it's Burda, so it's very much to the point but I actually quite liked their methods. There are two different methods of applying bias, the neck and the armholes are done differently, so it's quite a good top to learn these on.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It's simple and let's the fabric shine.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the finished garment?
Man, is it nice to have a flowy top catching the breeze on these hot days. I wish I had a whole bunch of silk or cotton tops to wear under it to maximize the cooling effect. And you DO need something under this, not only because the fabric is transparent, but also the front slit goes a LOT further than I realised when I was chopping it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and yes! I got a double double today!
