Burda Top

This is a pattern I had been wanting to try for a while. I just love the sleeve detail. It should have been an easy/quick project, but I had a hard time getting the tension right on my serger after Quinn played with the dials, and that resulted in lots of picking of the stitches and resewing.

Pattern: Burda World of Fashion Jan 2009, style 106B
Fabric: Premium stretch cotton from fabric.com


In the magazine, the model is wearing this shirt with a wide enamel belt. I love that look, but my black belt was too dressy for this cotton. I am going to make another one with shimmery stretch fabric.

That turned out great. You look really skinny in it also.

I'm starting to get really jealous of all your sewing but happy your projects are getting me motivated to set everything up.

Very nice - and you're getting good at those self photo shots! :) Hey, I just read those other comments about you looking so thin in it, and I completely agree. What a great way to start the holiday season!
