My second Burda project in preparation for summer! I made one of these for my sister in a stripy poplin and liked it so much that I made myself one. It was a bit low cut for me (I’m not generally one for showing off my undies…) so I stitched up the front V a bit. Also did french seams inside to contain all the frayed edges. Other than that, no variations on the original pattern. I found the instructions a bit hard to follow but I used my common sense and it’s come out OK! Thank you Burda :)
Light cotton (I think…it’s slightly shiny, think it’s got some man-made stuff in it too).
Burda for the pattern.
