Burda Mag 02-2009-108

Pattern Sizing:


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

Yes apart from my fabric being marginally less ugly!!

Were the instructions easy to follow?

Used instructions from other reviewers rather than Burda

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Love the neckline - it makes the top feel "grown-up" rather than just throwing on a T-shirt.

Fabric Used:

Cotton Jersey

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Took 3/4" off the sleeve cap as suggest by other reviwers

Used bias knit interfacing strips on the neckline, shoulders and to hem.

Used the Threads article tip to help hem:

Sewing the hems: (quote from Threads article)

"It's easiest to stabilize the hems before assembling the garment. Prepare the hems by pressing them into place (I use an oak-tag template). Cut 1/2-in.-wide strips of soft, all-bias knit fusible interfacing like SofKnit. Sew or serge the right side of a strip to the wrong side of the hem edge (adhesive side is up). After constructing the garment, fold the hem up, fuse it in place, and topstitch from the right side.

-Marcy Tilton of Takilma"

Made a variety of lengths of sleeves.

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

I have now made this top 6 times so YES YES YES

Previous tops (not in competition)


Lovely fast top to make.
