BWOF tunic top

Added Jul 29, 2008

by naughtylittl...

London, United K...






This is from the 07/2008 Burda magazine. I really like the pattern but it is too wide for me and falls off my shoulders a bit. Next time I will bring it in and try a higher neck line maybe. I am happy with the result though because it is my first try with knit-stretch fabric.

Material Notes

Stretchy knit remnant.





Burda, and my sister for taking the photos!

    Absolutely adorable!! I love this! I have some jersey remants too, and I’ve been wondering what to do with them!

    This top is totally cute — I really like the yoke fabric and the contrast. Hey, when are you going to review your sewing machines for my website? (No pressure — this post just reminded me!)

    oh, this is lovely, I’ve had my eyes on this pattern since I saw it. The two fabrics look amazing together.

    I LOVE it. the fabrics are great- is the fabric of the yoke part a stretch-knit too? You did a fantastic job on this and you look great- go Husky! ;o) I’ll have to give this one a go myself when that BWOF issue comes out over here.

    I know exactly what you mean about too wide. I just made a tank from McCalls 5388 that’s pretty much exactly the same as this and took it in at least 2 inches on either side.

    I like your top – there is a lot of interest without being fussy. Stretch knit fabric scares me a little!
