Pattern Review 3/2008 #113

Pattern: Burda World of Fashion 3/2008 #113

Description: Fitted wrap-over blouse with gentle neck flounces, butterfly sleeves and a pretty little peplum.

Sizing: 36 to 44, I made a 38

Instructions: They were pretty good, this is a fairly simple top to construct. I did use Cabin Baby’s (from Pattern Review) tip on her blog to finish the neckline a bit nicer.

Likes/Dislikes: I like the flounces and peplum, just a fun summer top. I really liked the lettuce edging and was so happy to finally accomplish a nice lettuce edging. Until this point, my letter grade for Lettuce Edges 101 was a “F” for failed miserably. I set my serger up for a 3-thread narrow hem and this was just the right setting. I had it in my head I needed a rolled hem. Yea, I will not have to repeat Lettuce Edges 101, I am ready for the 200 level classes!

Changes: Other than the neckline finish, no changes.

Fabric: Knit from Gorgeous Fabrics.

Conclusion: Another BWOF winner and another summer top for my wardrobe.

  9. Great looking top, the fabric is perfect. I still have not mastered Lettuce Edging 101. My attempts never look good and they look like attempts at something not a finished, pretty edge.
