Description

I loved this top but wanted to try a tank instead of a sleeved shirt, so I removed the sleeves and took in the shoulder a bit. I made a bias strip to finish the armholes.

Shortened the hemline a couple of inches (I’m very short, 5’1"), made a couple of adjustments to the darts in the back for fit.

A few blips here and there, but I’m really happy with how it turned out overall!

Material Notes

Mostly cotton with a bit of spandex. think I could have gone with something a little lighter weight to allow for a little more softness in the cowl.

      Thanks! This was my first time working with a printout pattern from BurdaStyle, and I was surprised by how well the format works! Looking forward to trying out some more soon.
