This is my third ever sewing project, my first one from burdastyle. It was also my first time using a twin needle, so that was a bit exciting. :) The bottom hem is different from the top because I accidentally sewed it backwards… The shoulders are also a bit messy, and I’d like it to be a bit more fitted under the bust and around the waist area cuz I think it makes me look a bit big, but I’ll deal with it. :] The burda pattern was quite easy to work with, which made life easy for me, since I don’t read patterns all that well. Overall, I’m pretty happy with it
a slightly stretchy, vinyly feeling green fabric with “eyes” or duck looking print
