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 :)

Material Notes

Light cotton (I think…it’s slightly shiny, think it’s got some man-made stuff in it too).





Burda for the pattern.

    Great idea stitching up the V, I was eyeing this pattern but the V bothered me! :)

    Your top is very nice and summery. I didn’t think I wanted to make this pattern, but you are changing my mind!
