#718 Top from Burda Special E575 (Autumn/Winter 2000)
Added Apr 20, 2014
Funnel-necked pullover top made with crinkled polyester fabric. Sewed it yesterday. Glad I took time to do the lengthening of torso to drop waistline and add length to sleeves (long now).
Would love to make this top in seersucker or plisse fabric next time.
Did the pattern tracing/adjustments one night, then started to cut sleeves out. Remaining pieces/piecing happened before I began sewing.
-If you are using a light serger feature on your sewing machine, make sure to clean the bobbin case/feed dogs after every two seams you serge. The lint from the crinkled fabric built up quickly.
April 2014 BurdaStyle #111 is a similar but more fitted style in jersey knit.
I had 1.5 yd of yardage that was 45in wide. It was just enough for front and back pieces but I had to add fabric to back corners as pattern piece extended past fabric. Sleeves came from dress I had in same fabric.
Pattern requires 54 inch crinkled organza or lightweight/transparent crushed fabrics, 1-5/8yd to 1-3/4yds, cut on the bias and thread. That’s all! :)
