Brooklyn, New Yo...
I originally wanted to make the Burda 02/2012 Tunic Dress, but I mistakenly purchased too little fabric. Then I bought this great patterned jersey knit, and because the pattern was very large, I once again, didn’t have enough for the dress. So I decided to make the Tunic Top instead. It’s not exactly what I envisioned, but I think it’s fine as a casual top.
This was my second attempt at working with jersey knit, and sewing the front and back panels was much more difficult than I anticipated. I think I need to pick up some tricks in this area. I wish more of the Burda instructions included diagrams, like many traditional “hard copy” patterns. But I love so many of the patterns offered online!
