Blue Boucle Shift

Added May 25, 2013

Placentia, Calif...






I loved this simple shift pattern from the 2/2013 Burdastyle issue # 118. However, I couldn’t find fabric that I liked which would be similar to what was used in the magazine’s photos. I did stumble on this wool boucle and apart from the fraying it was easy to work with. I didn’t add the little fringe detail because I just didn’t care for it.

No zippers or buttons and a snap to sew! I’ve already worn it twice to work with a cardigan.

Material Notes

1.5 boucle, interfacing, thread

      Thank you! I think you’re going to love this pattern. You can really do a lot like add buttons, use different fabric and no zippers unless you really need it.

      I have a boucle fabric very similar to the burda model. My only problem is that I’m afraid that this pattern will not be very tummy friendly:))

      Actually, I think this pattern should be okay for the tummy because it is not fitted around the waist and the A-line is flattering for I think nearly all shapes. I think you can try a muslin first to see if you like it without messing up your good fabric.
