Wavy Burda

February 23, 2016

This one’s pretty uninspiring, but that might just be because I can’t really wear it right now. Basically, I had fabric and a pattern that went together so I made something. Tada!


Pattern: BurdaStyle #107 05/2012

Fabric: Cotton, previously seen in this dress

Design Likes/Dislikes: There are no darts, instead the curved seams create all the shaping and it fits really well I think. I think it’s meant to be loose in the midsection. I just wish there was a sleeve option.


Sizing and Fit: I made a size 36. There are no darts or anything in the back.

Changes: I shortened it from a tunic to a shirt and left off the pockets. I also used bias binding instead of facings, the exposed black binding on the neckline was actually an accident.


For Next Time: Once I find a good woven sleeve pattern, I think I could frankenpattern this to have long sleeves pretty easily.

    I love this! I have long eyed that pattern, and seeing it made up with the interesting fabric as a top is inspiring!
