I had a very productive weekend today making a blouse and a t-shirt, but tonight I want to show you something else that I made last week. Actually it's not only one thing but one pattern made in three different fabrics.
Last week I was remembering burdastyle.com and the fact, that they have some free patterns on the page. So I was browsing and found the "Let's twist again top" by member irmchen. Having in mind that there was a similar pattern from pattydoo, I quickly decided to download the free pattern. I also found out, while trying to login and download the pattern, that I had an account on burdastyle.com, but had never used it. So with these three new makes I'll quickly fill my empty wall.
stoffe.de and would recommend this fabric as a similar one. The neckline was finished with a neckband made of the fabric and the drapes fall pretty well in this jersey quality. It's a great shirt for a night out, or dressed down with jeans appropriate for a special day at work.
pattydoo top Elaine, and I actually watched the pattydoo video tutorial for sewing tips and tricks.
I'm not sure, which way around to wear the top. I had to cut one piece on a kind of cross grain, because otherwise the pattern piece didn't fit on the fabric. So the stripes run horizontal on the back and diagonal on the front, but since the drapes change the direction slightly it's difficult to decide which version is the right one. The neckline was finished again with a strip of the fabric. It's much more neon, than it looks on the picture, but still not too much. You can find some stripey neon fabrics here.
Next on I'll show you, what I made of the leftover fabric from the shiny jersey and what I made in my summer sewing studio.
