I found this cute violet striped stretch fabric and immediately thought of this retro top pattern from Burda 07/2013. This was my first ever project using a pattern and my first ever top with sleeves!
It was quite hard to comprehend the instructions in the magazine (Russian Burda) even though I’m fluent in Russian. So many special terms! As for the sleeves, it was just “Add sleeves” and no instructions. It took me a while but I made it!
I wear it with pride now :)
I used a striped stretch cotton material
