Burda Magazine 2-2009 #118

Pattern Description:

Figure hugging top in jersey with off-shoulder puffed sleeves"

Pattern Sizing:


Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Yes, I do believe a solid fabric shows the details better but I do like my top

Were the instructions easy to follow?

I had to read the sleeve steps a couple of times to understand totally the construction process. Alot of the construction is carefully marking your pattern pieces, enabling you to match the corresponding pieces. Make sure you mark the bottom of the sleeve and inside sleeve piece, this helps tremendously.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

It is a fun knit shirt pattern, on my to-do list for quite some time.

Fabric Used:

A cotton-lycra knit from Needle Nook Fabric.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Added to length

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I might sew it again in a solid fabric, would be cute


Fun knit shirt, the sleeves and yoke make it unique.


  1. You are such a top maker (after my own heart), and they are all so pretty.

  2. Nice! I forgot how much I liked this pattern. I might have to dig this one out and make it again.

  3. The sleeve detailing on this Burda pattern lifts it above the ordinary. Love your print.

  4. Hey, that's really cute! When I first looked at the post, I thought the Burda girl was Mer or Kaitlyn!

  5. I had forgotten this pattern. I always liked the look. Yours made up well in a print!

  6. Luv the print and the new top!

  7. Love this top, especiaaly print! Want to see it on you!

  8. Very cute! Makes a tee shirt more stylish!

  9. Ever since I got the magazine with this pattern I have wanted to make it but have never got around to it. Seeing yours makes me really wish I had - it's so nice and your fabric is beautiful - I love the print!

  10. I tried making this a while ago, but couldn't wrap my head around the sleeve instructions. Yours is so cute, it makes me want to try again.

  11. What a coincidence! I just made my second version of this top! My first was solid kelly green and my new one is a tie-dyed navy. They are SO comfortable - and absolutely perfect for wearing here in Vancouver.
