This is a sort of top, Burda 5160 Super easy! Who wouldn’t want a super easy top?! I know I did!
I changed the pattern quite a bit to fit in with my wardrobe and not to make people want to send me back to the 80s. (Though that’s the decade I was born, haha!)
I shortened the top and took in the whole shoulder area. My shoulders are broad enough on their own that they don’t need a lot of extra attention. You know, the 80s silhouette…
I didn’t use the facings the pattern provided, but finished the neck area and the bottom with black bias tape. My fabric was too slippery to even think about cutting and sewing facings.

I used a polyester fabric, with a bit of sheen. It has a lovely drape and I really like the print, especially the black and red polka dots.
